When I was about 3 or 4 years old, we lived in West Virginia for a brief time. I will always remember the moment when I saw the ghost in my closet. It is one of my earliest and most vivid memories. I really have not told many people about it, but when I came across a magazine that was dedicated to ghost stories/legends in West Virginia; I realized I am not alone in my ghost encounter experience.
It was a short moment, actually, but I will never forget it. I was in bed and my closet was open. Standing there in the dark was a little boy, dressed in a bright yellow raincoat-type garment. He had brown hair and looked to be about 4 to 7 years old. I was not scared when I saw him. He looked at me, and I at him. I felt very calm and peaceful. I seem to remember feeling like he was watching over me in some way.
I am glad he appeared to me, because even today, I remember that moment and I know there are spirits around us. It makes me open to believing there is a spiritual world, although many do not acknowledge it today. I know it is true, because it happened to me.
