Majik -- Columbus, Ohio -- November 9, 2011

I want to put this down while it is still fresh in my mind.

This happened here at our house just today. This is a home that came with at least two or three unseen residents. Last year added one more.

We have four kids ages three, six, eight and eleven years old. The older two had already gone up to bed and as the six year old was about to go upstairs, she said "I am going to bed. Goodnight."

As soon as she said that, a man's voice came from behind me and said goodnight as plain as day. I was the only person downstairs. My wife was in the bedroom on Facebook.

Now, we have lived here for almost two years. The house dates to 1924 and we often hear at night what sounds like a man wearing boots in the upstairs hall. Last summer, I saw a woman dressed as if it were the early 1900's standing at the front door.

There are also sounds at times as if a little kid is playing in the attic (which runs the full length of the house).

Last December, my mother died in the back bedroom. She was living with us after suffering a stroke.

From time to time, she makes it clear that she is "visiting." I have captured a few EVP and will do another session on December 5th, with is the first anniversary of my mother's death.

In all the EVP sessions, I have never gotten a clearer response than what I heard tonight with the male voice saying goodnight.

There are people who are afraid of living in a house like this, but not us. The ghosts that live here are indeed part of the family.
