The Funeral Home Delivery

Posted on July 3, 2008

Over 8 years ago I was employed at a place called Custom Air Trays. They manufactured cremation supplies and caskets, supplying the local funeral homes. I made countless deliveries to many funeral homes around the area. One of those deliveries is forever burnt in my memory.

After parking behind the funeral home that I have delivered to several times before, I began to unload supplies onto a casket cart. I then opened the double doors to the storage area and pushed in the cart.

A lady, dressed in a long brown dress and brown plaid shirt (looked straight out of the 80′s) stood behind a table holding a styrofoam coffee cup (I figured she worked there and was on break). I pushed the cart further in just past the woman and asked her, “Is this a good place for me to put these trays?”

I received no answer and figured she didn’t hear me. I unloaded and went back outside for the second load. Once again I pushed the cart inside just past the woman. Again I asked her, “Is this a good place for me to put these trays?” Again she didn’t answer, so I turned around to speak to her again. She was gone.

She was no more then a few feet from me when I passed her. There was only one entrance in and out of that room. I ran out the room to hopefully catch her just out the door but she was no where to be found. I quickly realized what I just experienced and immediately jumped into my van and fled back to work with no paperwork signed and scared out of my mind.

My coworkers had a good laugh that day at my expense. A few weeks later I made a delivery to the same funeral home and spoke with the director to tell him my story. All he had to say was, “You should see what goes on here at night.”

  2. Joseph says:

    Thanks for sharing the story Chirs. You should go back and find out what goes on there during the night from staff members or managers. Maybe you can share other stories with us in the future.

    Thanks a lot
    Joe

  3. Tionna says:

    what did he mean by you should see what goes on here at night?

  4. Chris says:

    If my memory serves me right, the director actually said that at night the windows would sometimes vibrate and shadows would dart through the hallways. Before this incident, I could care less about ghosts and didn’t really believe in them. I think it would be safe to say that paranormal activity happens a lot in funeral homes across the country and around the world. I still remember the exact funeral home this happened in so if I have time this summer I will pay them a visit and see what comes of it. Scary stuff isn’t really my thing, heck, I don’t even watch horror movies lol. I have one other story of a remodel on a 19th century home in Suffolk, Va. I’ll post that sometime in the next week or so but its not as good as this one in my opinion. I think I’m beginning to get more and more interested in this stuff, lol

    I didn’t believe in all that ghost nonsense either Chris until i had an experience. How wrong i was!! You just can’t get your head around it can you? Especially when you’re a logical kind of person.
    I remember walking around in a haze for days afterwards, i couldn’t work (had to take time off) I couldn’t concentrate on anything. I also kept telling anyone who’d listen, just to try and understand it.
    I’ve never seen anything like you have, I was touched, well attacked to be more precise. Not sure i could cope with seeing something now, my nerves are too frazzled.
    Please tell us your other story.

    I like how the director wasn’t even surprised.

  7. chacha says:

    you’re one lucky guy, chris! experience comes right in front of your feet never imagine the people around hooking on different devices just to take a chance to see one! heheheh…

  8. Liz says:

    after I read this story (I’m not impressed by a lot of the stuff on here, so that says something!). That is crazy, seeing a full-blown apparition twice that looked like a human. You hit the gold mine of the paranormal field without even knowing it, Chris. Too crazy, but I believe it. All I could think of was the TV show “Six Feet Under” while reading this, and thinking how often funeral directors and the like must see stuff like you did, to the point where they’re used to it. I can’t imagine that.

  9. LittleKitKat says:

    I wonder fi they woman wanted to complain about the coffee?

    A friend of mine was a Funeral Director and lived in the flat above the storage and preperation rooms 9Just like Six Feet Under).
    She would of no way laughed at you like your coworkers and agreed with you as she heard things all the time and mostly talked to the bodies as well – as mediums kept coming up to her 9not knowing her job) to tell her a reply or a thanks.
    her only problem was if she heard any ghost stories or something scary she would refuse to return home if she had “guests” downstairs.

    Lovely story though =)

  10. Marlaina says:

    Yes Chris Funeral home’s I would venture to bet are all haunted. They all have that “errie feel” when you walk in. At least that’s how it is for me. And what is really wird and creeps me out is that a lot of times when a Funeral Home goes out of bussiness: there are people that will acctually move into them. There isn’t enough money to pay me to live in one. And please post your other expeirience about the house.

  11. Pat says:

    WOWSER!!!!!!!!! Yes I have seen apparitions during the day time but yours was so REAL- you really thought she was there…. She must have been a woman that died young…gosh but that gave me the chills! Your co-workers won’t be laughing when it happens to them…..Thanks for sharing and glad you are ok… bet the person at the funeral home sure has some stories too……..

  12. sam says:

    wow, sounds scary, but rather interesting ^_^

    take care

  13. eileen says:

    Great story….I worked on a funeral director a month or so ago….(I’m a massage therapist)…he seemed pretty friendly/talkative…and as the conversation rolled it came to the paranomal…and the “this isn’t all there is”….I asked him to tell me a story if he didn’t mind, and he had a great one, which is long, and personal, so I won’t go into it, but suffice it to say, he’s had MANY, MANY paranormal experiences.
