Granddaughter spots dead nan’s face in clouds as she clears out her old house

A stunned woman spotted her dead nan's face in a cloud while clearing out her old house.

Natalie Doig, 30, believes Gwendoline Shorter was "looking down over her family from heaven."

Relatives of 87-year-old Gwendoline were devastated when she died from breast cancer last year.

Mum-of-two Natalie couldn't believe her eyes and took a photo of the formation on her phone, convinced she could see her face and hairline in the clouds.

Natalie said: "I thought 'wow'. It was so unreal. It was symbolic.

"It was as if she was saying 'you are doing the right thing' in clearing the house. We had decisions to make.

"I believe nan was looking down at us all from heaven.

"There's always someone with you I think. My nan was always a big believer of that too."

Natalie, from Thurmaston, Leicestershire, said the sighting has helped her family grieve the retired school cook, who had nine grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren.

She added:"We all called her 'the queen of our family'. She was the glue that held us all together. She'd do anything for any of us in the family.

"She got really really poorly and it was quite difficult.

"That was the first moment she contacted us after her death. It was like she was still with us. It felt like she's there, she's keeping watch of us from up there.

"She was lovely. She was a massive Royal fan and absolutely loved The Queen and Royal Family."

Natalie, who has two young boys, added: "When we first saw it, we saw her face straight away and took the picture.

"We got home and zoomed in, we even noticed it had her hairline and hairstyle. It was more of her in her younger days than later ones, but it was fantastic. She was there."

Scientists have studied the phenomenon, known as pareidolia, in which people see faces or familiar shapes in clouds or inanimate objects.

But they are divided over its cause. Some have suggested it is because the human brain is wired to detect faces from birth, others believe it is due to our brain's desire to assign meaning to random images.
