I just want to say that it is good to know that I'm not crazy!

I have been seeing my shadowman since I was a teen. The first time was when I was in junior high and my sister and I were getting ready for school. You see my father had begun building on to our house and we had that plastic covering dividing the house. I had happened to notice that there was a man standing in the new add-on. It had scared me so much that I called a neighbor and he came and checked it out. But no one was there. Well, later on the way to school the bus had gotten into an accident and some of the kids got hurt.

On another occasion I was sleeping in my room which was on the new side of the house, and I woke up and standing next to my window was a dark figure. I remember thinking that I was dreaming but when I closed my eyes and opened them again he was still there. But he had no facial features that I could see. He was just black. He had a hat like a Quaker would have on. Actually he looked just like a Quaker or Mormon would look but with no face at all. I stared at him for a while and then closed my eyes and fell asleep again. The very next day I went out driving with my parents because I had just gotten my permit and I ended up getting into and accident and having to go to the hospital.

Now I have seen him a couple of times where he has actually moved towards me but I close my eyes before he gets to me. And when I open them again he is gone.

The last time that I saw him was the night before my grandfather had died. He came to me in the living room that night. I was sleeping there off and on for a while. When he had come to me I had woken up and he was standing above me with his head tilted to the side. Just staring at me. I closed my eyes and fell asleep and the next day I received the call that my grandpa had died.

I haven't seen my shadowman in a while, but I believe that he is my alarm against harm. The only times he seems to show up is when something bad is about to happen in my life.

I am sorry that my story is so long but it is so great to actually see that others have had experiences like me. My family doesn't really believe me. You see, I can see my shadowman and they can't, but everyone else in my family get these feelings between them to where they know something is wrong or when someone in the family is about to call. All the women in my family had the same feeling that something was wrong with grandpa the night he died and around the same time. I don't know if this thing of seeing the shadow person is part of others in my family but I can say that we all have experienced things at the same time that cannot be explained.
