Photo of Boy ‘Talking’ to Late Twin about School Goes Viral

Walker Myrick has a twin brother who died in the womb in a medical situation called twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome. But he would love his twin brother, Willis, with all his heart – and a photo of him ‘talking’ to his late twin about school has recently gone viral.

The Myrick family had been excited about the twin pregnancy but would receive heartbreaking news when mom Brooke was 24 weeks pregnant. The two were born on March 6, 2007 – and it was a bittersweet moment for the family.

Walker was rushed to NICU where he spent several days recuperating; he was born just two pounds and fifteen ounces. But Brooke couldn’t bear to see Willis but managed to draw the courage to do so after two days.

But while Walker never met his brother, his parents made sure he knew he had a twin. So, he grew up feeling a special bond with the twin he never met. Back in 2012, Walker had just started kindergarten when the family visited Willis tomb.

According to Brooke, Walker ran ahead to Willis’ grave and cheerfully chatted to his twin about what had happened in school, like the boy was alive and listening to him! So touched by the moment, Brooke took a photo of Walker leaning against Willis’ grave and shared it social media where it had gone viral.

I do think they share a special bond. They were identical twins so I think it will always be there,” Brooke said.

I think he feels a sense of peace at the grave site. Even though years have passed, he has told us he believes his brother is always with him. He does speak of him often and shares his brother with his friends.

What is Twin-to-Twin Transfusion Syndrome?

Twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome is a medical condition wherein twins share one placenta but one of them receives more supply and blood flow than the other, resulting in the eventual death of the other.

It has a 60-100% mortality rate.

Caught On Cam: House That Was Once Used As A Hospital Has Uninvited Guests

It’s easy to say that there is a ghost or something paranormal in your home. Sometimes when you feel something, or you “know” that there is something in your house, no one will believe you even if you told them.

Some ghosts are caught in CCTV cameras like this one who smashed a glass door or this poltergeist who has been terrorizing a school corridor, which was caught on camera twice.

On the other hand, some ghosts also show themselves on casual photos and videos. It is still unknown how ghosts are able to show themselves in photos and videos.

This is why a lot of people are setting up cameras to capture what it is that has been bothering them.

In Kent, an eerie moment was caught in that camera that was originally set up to watch over the family’s two French bulldogs.

The house in which the ghost was caught was a Grade II listed building that was once used as a hospital. The family who is living there is now convinced that their house was haunted and that they are sharing it with uninvited guests.

While the family was sleeping, the camera caught a misty figure that came through the door at the back. The owner was wondering what it was because the door where it came from was a private garden.

“Being a skeptic I was thinking of what else it could be but our living room backs onto a private garden so there was very little it could be.”

It appeared to glide from the door to the adjacent room, away from the camera’s view.

But only to return from the bottom of the screen to glide around the living room again.

The family shared that there were also times that one of their dogs would growl without apparent reason.

“On the run-up to the footage our youngest dog kept staring into our hallway and on a couple of occasions growled but we just dismissed this and thought he was still settling in.”

The owner of the house, Stephen Lee, did not believe at first, but after having a couple of eerie things happen after they discovered the video, he is now ready to accept that it could be something supernatural.

“Since the footage we’ve had a couple of eerie things happen – especially since we’ve put up the Christmas tree where lights have flickered on and off consecutively.”

A hardworking man who went to a World Balance outlet at a mall to buy shoes from his savings received much-needed help from a kind-hearted customer who realized he should be rewarded for his efforts.

In a post that has since gone viral on Facebook, a store associate at World Balance shared the heartwarming story.

According to Caloy Pineda, the man who was later identified as Kuya Rexel, entered their store and began choosing from the shoes on sale. He didn’t look rich but the store associates readily assisted him, anyway.

Caloy described him as an obviously hardworking man who seemed really excited to finally buy a pair of new shoes from his hard-earned money. Finally, Kuya Rexel settled for a pair worth Php1,200 ($23.80).

While the staff prepared the shoes he chose, he took out his money and began to count it on the bench. He had a bunch of money, all Php20 bills ($0.40). It was obvious that the money came from his savings as many were still folded up.

It was at this point that another customer, a woman who goes by the name Lilliam Matteo Quiat on Facebook, went closer and began asking Kuya Rexel random questions like where he was working. She praised him for being hardworking and offered to give him some cash so he could choose another pair that he would really like to have.

Kuya Rexel was hesitant as he didn’t want to take her money but she insisted. After some coaxing, Kuya Rexel finally chose another pair he was eyeing; it costs Php1,799 ($35.65). The woman gave the store associates Php500 ($9.90) and went away without telling them her name.

But according to Caloy, he was able to take some photos and got her name because she reserved a pair of shoes at the store. She would have remained anonymous and certainly didn’t give the money for praise but she was later happy to hear that the story became an inspiration to many after it went viral.

Although she is still in the ICU, World of Buzz, it is lucky that she survived the incident and nothing more tragic happened to the girl from South China who decided to take a selfie with an upcoming train who seconds later, eventually killed her on the stop.

The girls managed to take photos of the incident, one while Hayati was still upright and another one where she was already down and have probably already hit her head.
