Grandma’s Clock

This true scary story happened to my mom.  My Grandmother (my mom’s mom) died about 14 years ago in 2001.  She died on a Wednesday alone in her home.  She was not discovered until two days later on Friday by my mom at exactly 8:15 pm.  My mom looked at the clock when she found her.  Anyway, my Grandma gave my mom this clock many years ago.  It was nothing special, it was just a clock that had a glass base and a gold face.  It was battery operated and it had no alarm or any special functions, other than it was very pretty.

My Grandma was a strict mother and very family oriented.  She would not allow the family to fight or not to attend family functions.  Everybody had to get along and she would not tolerate family feuding at all.

Fast forward to August of 2015.  My Grandma has been dead for 14 years and my mom is now fighting with her sister over something very stupid imo.  They haven’t spoken in months.  This would have been unacceptable to my Grandmother.  Saturday August 15th, 2015 is the 14th anniversary of my Grandmas death.  The clock she gave my mother inexplicably rang like an alarm clock around 4:00 pm in the afternoon.  My mom said it sounded like a bell ringing.  It stopped after a minute or two.  This is extremely weird because this clock does not have an alarm.  There is nothing to it except for the battery compartment and a knob to turn the hands.  We all examined it and nobody could find any rhyme or reason for this clock to ring.  Mind you it has never rang before either and she has had it for probably 20 years or more.  Then Monday the 17th, at exactly 8:15 pm, the clock started ringing again.  This was the exact time my mom found my Grandma dead.  My mom was alone and could not get the clock to stop ringing.  She almost broke it because the ringing was so annoying.  Finally after about 10 minutes, my mom said out loud, “Okay mom, I will call Jeannie!(her sister she was fighting with)  Just stop that damn ringing!”  Instantly, the clock stopped.  My mom believes her mother was mad that she was fighting with her sister and was reaching out to her from beyond the grave.  No one was their to confirm these events, but my mom would definitely not lie about this.  We figured the first ringing on Saturday at around 4:00 was the actual time that my Grandmother died.
