My Friend And I Saw The Grim Reaper


In November 2019 my friend and I were driving back home from a Zumba class. We turned a street corner and saw what I think must have been the grim reaper. He was standing on the pavement, he had a black hood, no scythe, a white, ancient face. His face and hood looked like something from the middle ages, but there was a preternatural quality to his face. It's so hard to describe because myself and my friend only saw him for a few seconds, but we felt him looking directly at us as we turned that corner, and drove passed him. There was blue, red light and white in his face. That's the best I can do!

My friend and I drove back to her house. When we got to her house she was as freaked out as I was because she mentioned what we had seen to her husband.

We soon put it out of our minds and didn't think any more about it.

Sadly in March 2020 the friend I had been with who saw the apparition with me that evening in November died of an aneurysm.

Her death prompted me to think back to that grim reaper like figure.

We weren't afraid of him. His presence wasn't terrifying, just freaky. It almost felt like he didn't want to be there, but had to be. Almost apologetic?

Did anyone else see something like this before the Corona virus pandemic hit?

Was it a grim reaper or some kind of ferryman?

I wouldn't say I was psychic, although weird things have happened in the past I can't explain, but very rarely. I've always been with someone else, another female, when strange stuff has happened too. I'd be interested to hear your thoughts, thank you.

Yes, I did see 'the grim reaper' or 'death'. It was actually quite scary. I am not sure how much I should say. I always thought it was symbolic, never thought it would be a real being until my encounter.

That must have been truly shocking that there was such a powerful facilitator to death there before you and what had you done or why was he looking at you... His coming into sight with only the colors you mentioned make his presence that much
More powerful that not even a logical mind could dismiss him. As from what I have seen his presence is extremely powerful and not even a childish person trying to scare you was a possibility. I was and would be asking yourself why he was taking the time to see you personally while your living. Also he is so easily dismissed quickly as there is now way to make sense of the truth. I hope that's the last time you see him again until his boat.

I'm so sorry to hear about your mum passing!

I never believed in a grim reaper or apparitions before seeing one with my own eyes. I would have put it down to my imagination had my friend not seen it too.

Having seen the reaper before my friends death has changed my mind on this however and does make me wonder what lies beyond death, something I never believed in before.

So yes, seeing a cloaked reaper like figure with a skeletal face is absolutely a premonition of someone close to you dying. Is it a warning? I have no idea.

It is strange how only a few people see reapers and not others, but at the same time it seems to be fairly common. It is also odd that the reaper appears differently to some people - for some the reaper is tall, others very small, or he has a scythe, for some he has a face, for others no face at all.

Yet all seem to have a hood, or a cloak, either no face or a skeletal one.

All seem to appear before someone close to us dies.

I don't know about you, but it isn't something I particularly want to see again! At the same time I find it comforting that there may be a place our souls go to after our physical bodies die.

Take care:)

Interestingly enough I just found this website and this post searching for something else. However, I believe I may have had a similar situation to yours but not exactly.

In July 2016, I had fallen asleep next to my mom. In the middle of the night, I opened my eyes and I was looking at the closet. I saw an apparition of what I still believe to be something that was grim reaper like, as it had a cloak and a face that was sort of like skeletal. It reached out it's hand and then vanished. My mom woke up and I told her what I had saw and she told me not to scare her with those things.

Unfortunately she passed away 2 months later. Maybe there is something connected?
