A grandmother receives weekly visits from a chatty owl that her family believe is a sign from her late husband.
The owl visits Ranna almost every day and sits on her balcony for hours. It even tries to hop on her lap and “chats” back to her when she hoots at it.
Granddaughter Shai Ward captured the wholesome footage when she visited the home in Phoenix, Arizona and saw the unique bond with the animal—and strongly believed he represented something truly special.
The owl’s first visit to Ranna’s balcony was on February 24 of this year—exactly two years after her beloved grandfather’s memorial ceremony.
Bob, who passed away in February, 2020, was Ranna’s husband for nearly 70 years—but the 98-year-old widow has yet to fully believe that her visitor is really a sign from the after-life.
However, her granddaughter says that the rest of their close-knit family is sure that Bob is keeping an eye on his love.
“My grandparents were best friends, who deeply respected one another. You felt the love around them and from them,” says Shai.
“My grandmother is the sweetest soul. She is a devout Catholic and attributes all that her life has become to the higher power.”
“Her sass and wit show that 98 is just a number… and her and my grandpa’s relationship was such a sight to see that our whole family just treasured them as one.”
