Spirits... How Do You Know... ?

    So when I'm down the shore, I walk along the boardwalk past these benches that are engraved.  There are quotes and notes to loved ones, and dates of those who have left this world.

    I walk, reading them, thinking about who took the time to have this bench dedicated to someone, and I wonder...

    Is that soul still with us?  Is Grandpa Joe sitting on the bench beside me, smiling out at the ocean, waiting for the day his wife will finally join him?

    Unless you're Allison DuBois, (and if you are, you rock), how do you really KNOW there is a spirit in your presence?  Have you ever felt like someone was just right beside you, trying to make that connection?

    Those benches are just empty bottles with the labels still intact
