This is an article about twins. They say that there is a connection between twins and that they share a lot of different things neither one of them is aware of it. This story is about Ed Warren and his twin sister, Babette Pauline “Babe” Miney Zaffis, affectionately called Babe by her friends and family. Ed and his sister grew up in a haunted house in Bridgeport, Conn. At the age of five, they had their first ghostly experience. They could hear someone walking up the front staircase into the kitchen and turn on the light but no one would be there. This would scare them so much that they would hide in their bedroom closet. This would eventually lead Ed Warren into a career pursuing ghosts and haunted dwellings. His sister would not have anything to do with it. If you asked her about the ghostly experience she would tell you to ask her brother Ed because she was afraid of the supernatural.
John Zaffis, would joke about huge difference about his mother, Babe. and his uncle, Ed, being so different. Getting back to the connection between twins, Ed Warren is not a psychic person so for him to experience things with his deceased twin sister is something of a personal nature.
While Babe was in her home nearing the end she experienced seeing apparitions of deceased family members. She would see her mother and several other relatives. John would ask his Mom, who is here in the room with you now? She would tell me who was with her, then John would tease her and say, “Ask them how it is over there”. She would tell John that they would not say anything to her, they would just smile at her. Then John would say to her, How will I know what it’s like over there, when you cross over, you will have to come back and tell me. His mother would get a serious look on her face, and wouldn’t respond.
One day when John was teasing his mom about this, she looked at him, and said, I’ll tell you what, I’ll come back and tell my brother that everything is okay over there. John said he laughed and said Okay mom, you do that. Several months later she passed away. After her passing, John was visiting with Ed and he came over and said to me, John had a dream about my sister. I don’t know if this is for you or your father but she said everything is okay over there. At that time John remembered the remark she had made. John said, “At that point, every emotion inside of me went cold. I turned around and left the room. My emotions haven’t been that wild since the day she died.”
A short time after that John was with Ed and he was telling John of the dream he had of his sister in a beautiful forest. In the forest he saw a lot of big trees and a waterfall with her by it, and Ed said to him, “John there were all kinds of beautiful flowers and all kinds of colors, pastels.” John asked Ed, “What color stood out to you Ed?” Why do you want to know that John? asked Ed. Just curious John said. Ed said, “I think it was blue, some red and pinks.” Stunned, John said, Ed, blue was Babe’s favorite color. Ed asked John, Why such an intense look on your face? John said to Ed, “I know I never told you or anyone else, of a little remark your sister said to me, in regards to coming back, to let us know everything was okay. Ed and John looked at each other and Ed said, “I guess now we know she is okay where she is.” And John said I’m glad she is in such a beautiful place.
John thought this story would be a nice tribute to the twins, and to know that it is true, you can communicate in different ways, from beyond the grave. September 7, 1926 marks the birth of Ed and Babe, and unfortunately, September 26, 1997 the passing of Babe. Ed passed away Thursday, August 24 2006.
