Knick Knack Shelf

June 26, 2011

My grandparents had made an agreement that whoever “went first” would send a sign (if possible) to let the remaining person know that they were okay and watching over them. If the person’s spirit could come back, the sign would be that a specific knick-knack shelf would be knocked off the wall. My grandfather fell asleep at the wheel of his truck in 1978, went off the road, and hit a concrete embankment. He was still alive when they brought him to the ER, but died shortly thereafter. When my grandmother returned home from the hospital (she was alone – it happened so fast none of the family was there yet), that exact knick-knack shelf was laying the in middle of the living room floor. That sign gave my grandmother considerable comfort because she knew without a doubt that it was grandpa telling her he was okay.
