Ghosts aren’t something you see or hear, but something you feel. It’s not what’s there. It’s what you expect to be there, that isn’t. I didn’t fully understand until my first pet died. My father brought home Lizzie when I was only just old enough to walk. I don’t remember a time before her. My entire youth up until the age of eighteen or so, I would come home after school each day to find her curled up in her bed next to the fireplace.
