Thanks to Linda for this story!
Linda gave birth to her daughter, Amylyn, in December 1974. Linda’s Aunt Vicky, who also happened to be her godmother, had requested to be the new baby girl’s godmother. Linda spent seven days in the hospital after giving birth. While she was there, Linda found out that even though there was a horrible snow storm going on, her aunt and uncle had come from Bronx, New York all the way to Connecticut to see the baby.
When Linda spoke to Aunt Vicky on the phone, she said she was annoyed that they had driven so far and had not even bothered to come and say hi to her. Her aunt’s response was chilling. She said that she had wanted to spend time with her new great-niece because this was the last chance that she was going to have to see her. Linda dismissed this, saying that Aunt Vicky was going to be the godmother and that the baby would be home in a few days. There would be plenty of time to get to know Amylyn.
Two days after they got home from the hospital, Linda’s mother was over her house when suddenly the phone rang. Linda has psychic abilities and often has prophetic premonitions. She gasped, telling her mother not to pick up the phone.
“It’s bad news about Aunt Vicky.”
The phone continued to ring. The caller rang for a total of three times. Finally, Linda’s mother said that her daughter was being ridiculous and picked up the phone. It was Aunt Vicky’s husband on the other end of the line. He had called to tell the family that she had committed suicide.
A couple of years passed. Amylyn was now two years old. One night, her parents heard her crying, so her father went upstairs to see if she was okay. When he came back, Linda saw that he was shaking and his face was paper white. When she asked him what was wrong, he said that he wanted to throw up and described to her what he just witnessed happening upstairs in their daughter’s bedroom.
“There’s an angel upstairs rocking our daughter to sleep.”
Linda nodded. “Uh huh. You’re crazy.”
“Go and see for yourself.”
Sighing, Linda went upstairs to Amylyn’s room. She froze at the door. Aunt Vicky’s spirit was sitting in the rocking chair, holding Amylyn in her arms. Her husband had never met her aunt, so he didn’t know what she looked like, but Linda recognized her immediately.
When Amylyn was in her mid-twenties she had to have a hysterectomy. Her parents and in-laws were all in the hospital waiting to see her when she came out of surgery. During her daughter’s operation, Linda started praying to Aunt Vicky, asking her to watch over her and help her come through the procedure safely.
Fortunately, the surgery was a success. Later on in the recovery room, Amylyn told her mother that she had had a dream when she was under the anesthesia. Aunt Vicky had appeared by her side at the operating table. Taking her goddaughter’s hand, she had said, “I will protect you.”
