One day a few years ago, my little brother, who was 9 at the time was outside with my dad. My little brother goes off to the side yard and sees, what he called the "Grim Reaper". He said he say it floating from out side back yard, to the front yard. So he sees it, freaks out, runs in the house and tells my mom. Of course you may think, it's just a little boys' imagination, but he was scared, and a little bit in shock. My mom believed him. Why would a little boy lie about something that scary looking. He decribed the cloke it was wearing, but it didn't have the sythe (mispelled?) Anyway, could it have been something else? Please someone explain this.

So I told my friend who I was with last night about this "Grim Reaper" thing. She tells me, she's seen one and her Aunts has seen one 4 or 5 times. But nothing bad has happened to them. One story in particular she told was about her Aunt. She said that her Aunt was sleeping and she wakes up to a cloked figure standing at the foot of her bed, what appears to be touching her foot. Agian I am NOT lying about these stories, I hate lyers. Please can SOMEONE, ANYONE PLEASE explain this. Are they just Ghosts or THE "Grim Reaper"?

Well there are alot of problems with that nothion wink2.gif
Im not sure what they could be...maybe the angle of death...but as you said nothing bad has happened.
Maybe shadow people (or more probably real shadows)
Anyway this was an interesting story...thanx for posting it. I hope others can give better solutions.

HE HAD IT COMIN'
HE HAD IT COMIN'
HE HAD IT COMIN' ALL ALONG,
IF YOU'D HAD BEEN THERE,
IF YOU'D HAD SEEN IT,
I'D BETCHA YOU WOULD HAVE DONE THE SAME

Someone comes to take you  someplace once you have died. Grim reaper, angel of death or a mere guide, its all the same. I don't see why your brother would see it flying around in the backyard though. The grim reaper shows up to those dying.

I really don't know. All that I know is that he was freaked out bad. But then again, maybe it wasn't the Reaper... but who knows. I'm just wondering if other people ever had seen the same thing as him. Thanks though  original.gif

everytime i read something like this, i must assume that it's a result of being in the hypnagogic state, because i see such cloaked figures all the time but only when im about to fall asleep or when i'm in sleep paralysis. during these times i hear lots of whispering noises or scuttling of little feet on the marble floor or hear some music (most commonly from a piano or a flute) playing.

Doubt if you could see angels of death/ guardians or whatever those spirits that call for you once you die without actually dieing.
If what the boy saw was true then it might have been a shadowman.

I saw the grim reaper all the time, but a straight jacket and a lot of pills made him go away....heh


All joking aside, it was probably just a ghost apparition. You should not try to label such things as anything you believe is just a guess. Too bad you didn't get a photo of it. You should keep a camera handy in case you see it again.

Everyone on this forum would love to see it.

Oh yes, I wish I could catch something on camera. But everytime something strange happens, I don't have it on me. Well, I'm thinking that it wasn't the Grim Reaper, I'm thinking it's shadow men. Still scary, but at least it's not the Grim Reaper. original.gif

I totally agree with your twilight signature. My gf who isnt fat, or goth is into twilight, and she is embarrassed to even look at a book, or dvd of it in public because she also says, "its a fat chick thing!" lol

Perhaps he missed his appointment. We have found out about that loophole by watching "Dead Like Me"....

What logic is telling me:

1. He thought he saw something he didn't, be it hallucination or made up
2. Other kids were playing a trick on him

What my experiences are telling me:

He may have seen it. I work in an old folk's home, and one day I swear I felt as if Death himself were sitting around this corner waiting for someone to die. Strangest feeling I've ever had. I don't recall whether or not one of the residents died, but the feeling itself didn't scare me but almost put me to peace that there may be an afterlife.

Yet, I still have doubts in everything. It's just how I have to be.

Best-

I'm new here, but this topic inspired me to post.  Thirty years ago, when I was a teenager I woke up one night and saw a hooded figure over my bed.  I didn't see it full length, just the head, shoulders and arms that were bent at the elbows so that I could see the bony hands.  It scared me so I turned away.  At that point I thought I might have dreamed it, so I looked up again.  It was still there and I knew for sure that I was awake.  I turned away again and when I got up enough nerve to look again it was gone.  The next day my grandpa died.  I don't know if that was a coincidence or not.  I know many of you will not believe me, but I was just happy to find out that someone else saw something like this.
