I understand that it's pretty commonplace for people who have lost loved one, particularly the elderly, to see a "ghost" of the person after their death.

I See Dead People – The Frontal Cortex

My mother, who was a rational and well-educated, no-nonsense sort of woman confided to me that once after her mother had died she appeared briefly in Mom's bedroom rocking in her rocking chair and saying, "Don't worry, _____. Everything will be alright."

I've never had the experience myself but think it would be a rather nice one to have.

I sometimes wonder if the theory of multiple universes could have something to do with the seeing of ghosts. And then there are just nutty people too. But I don't believe that everyone who has that experience and interprets it as a "ghost" is "looney."

Okay, this isn't about a ghost, but you could say the paranormal was involved here. Four rescuers heard a voice saying "help me" from an overturned car in a river. The mother had died and the baby was unconscious, hanging upside down in a baby seat.
Do those who think there is nothing beyond the material world really believe these guys are weak minded, or just decided to make this story up?
Here is a link to the story:

The ones that believe it was because of a chain letter they received or something, for sure.
