But i don't really know if that's true you know i mean. Was that her wishful thinking that she could see them. That's what she needed. The you know i just. I don't know that one's That was. It's a hard one because it the grief i think does really really push that in there but you know i mean we also know the white house has a lot of spirits a lot of energy so i guess i don't know for sure So what would you say for your rating As far as this being a paranormal thing. I'm gonna give it a zero but as far as satisfying a need that she had. I would go all the way to attend for that. Uh-huh definitely did share. I'm i'm going to give it a four four you know.

He should show himself to be.
