Death and its Mystery – After Death – Camille Flammarian
The following account of an apparition of a dead woman, a month and a half after dissolution, was sent me from Pointe-a,-Pitre, Guadeloupe, in a letter dated April 15, 1921, by Monsieur Gilbert de Chambertrand:
About 1896 my wife and my sister-in-law were living with their father, in Saint-Frangois (Guadeloupe). A lady, a friend of the family, had been dead for about a month and a half; she was the godmother of one of the young girls; they called her "Aunt Armande." The two sisters were going to the first mass; it was about half-past five in the morning. They were going downstairs, the elder in front, when they saw a form standing at the bottom of the stairs. The elder said to her sister, "There's some one there!" They went on down to the strange form, and the younger, looking attentively, cried out, “Aunt Armande!" They collapsed from fright. A cry brought their father, but nothing more was to be seen. The lady's replica had, been seen very distinctly by the two sisters. Her arms were crossed, her eyes bright; a veil covered her head and fell down on one side. The apparition had remained motionless and dumb.
