The Jealous Ghost

After his father remarried, Mark says that the ghost of his mother makes herself known to his step-mother

My mother was an unhealthy person when she was on this Earth. She died on 12/28/78. My father, after about a year, remarried. My mother's name was Ginny (Virginia). My stepmother's name is Genny (Genevieve).

Soon after she moved into my father's place (I was living there at the time as well), strange things began happening.

I knew my mother was behind it. She and I were always close, and after her death, strangely even closer.

My stepmother was in the house one day rearranging the kitchen to suit her. She heard noises that were possibly coming from another area in the house. She turned to me and asked if I had made that noise. I replied, no. I turned around where the noises were originating, since I had heard them too, and saw a vague image of my mother standing there. Genny turned around and asked what I was staring at. I told her my mother's image. She didn't see it.

She walked in the general direction of my mother's image to put some pots and pans in a cupboard. She told me she was chilled, but hadn't been before. I walked over to the area and I felt a little cooler, but a strange sense of warmth. Genny finished in the kitchen and started out the door to the garage. Right before she got to the door, we both heard a door slam shut, but there was no breeze in the house or any draft.

She put her hand on the knob. She told me it was ice-cold, but the air conditioner wasn't running, and if it were, it wouldn't be that cold.

She has told me there were times she couldn't sleep at night; something kept waking her. I never had this happen. My estimation on this experience is that mother didn't want Genny in the house.
