Experience description:  

I have a question that I have been seeking answers to and have not come up with much of anything, yet. My grandmother and I were very close, she passed away this past Thursday February 12th at 2:53 pm. My mother and I were there on both sides of the bed hysterical and crying. After about 5 minutes, we calmed down a bit and the first thing I noticed was a song, rather a theme from Young and the Restless by Henri Mancini playing on the TV (music channel). This struck me as odd at the time because I don't think that she ever missed an episode since it aired, and she was just talking about the theme song and how pretty it was a week earlier. Then my mother was telling me that she and my grandmother had been seeing lights and shapes of mist in the apt. (my grandfather passed January 30th 2008). So, my mother told me to look up, and I am not one who has ever seen anything but I do believe. I looked up and it is quit hard to explain but there was a fog not white but grayish, charcoal in color…..you could feel the heaviness when your hand touched it. Then there were at least 20 or more black like specs, small almost looked like it was a dust ball. That is what I thought until it went straight toward my head, I moved back watched it go through my hand and then it shot back up to the ceiling. They were all moving around , it was so surreal and 3-d looking. I know I saw this and was perplexed by the color???? Also when the body was removed they where gone , I have not seen them since. Interesting fact as well my grandfather died 6 days before my mother birthday and my grandmother exactly 6 days afterward……I would like to know if anyone can tell me what the color of these , what I believe to be spirits, mean?
