I do watch Taps once in a while but avoid the English one as I think it is a lot of hype; way to much activity being heard and seen where Taps has some that feel more realistic.
Many years ago, my wife had a visit from a dear old friend that passed. She had wanted him to stop smoking his pipe for several years and would take it and hide it on him and they had a very close relationship. When he passed, she asked his wife for his pipe, (we have it to this day) and it was a short time after that a vision appeared at the end of our bed but said absolutely nothing. My wife was somewhat scared and believes it was this old gentleman looking for his favorite pipe and letting her know that all was OK.
