My brother-in-law used to have lived in a single house which is nestled on the hill near Neihu county, for nearly thirty years, and my mother-in-law spent her last days there. Two years ago, my brother-in-law moved to an apartment in Taipei City and left the house vacant, pending for sale.
Last month the house was finally sold to a new owner. The other day, the new owner called my brother-in-law over the phone, saying her sister(?) is a medium who claimed the spirit of my late mother-in-law is still lingering in the house and hoping her families can bring her to where she should belong now. So yesterday my brother-in-law invited my wife and me to the house again, where the medium performed some rituals as to "usher" my mother-in-law to her new home.
I am an agnostic regrading religion, let alone superstition. However, such a performance brought back the memories to my mother-in-law, who is a true lady with deep devotion to her families. I miss her very much.
