Vancouver Ghosts: Old Woman Cooking While Humming

Location: Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

The following report was sent into our website by Sabina on June 26, 2012:

“I once lived in a house in Vancouver which was built in 1939, we lived next to a church. Whenever in the house I felt like I was being watched. Sometimes I felt a breath on my neck, or a presence behind me. But one encounter really stood out. I’ve always had trouble falling asleep. So this was very strange. Late at night I was in my bed, when all of a sudden I felt like I was surrounded, even though I could only see one silhouette, in the shape of a tall man. He approached me and said “Shhhh… It’s all right.” Then he put his hand on my forehead, it was as cold as ice. Then I closed my eyes and fell asleep instantly.

Another time I was once sleeping downstairs because I was having a sleepover. I suddenly heard humming from the kitchen. I knew that once when the house was first built an old women lived in the house. As I quietly went into the kitchen, I saw an old woman cooking while humming. I ran back to bed. I never saw her again.

Whenever going in to the basement I always felt an aura of jealously, as if ghosts were watching me wishing they could be young and alive again.”
