Edward Warren born in Bridgeport, Connecticut on September 7, 1926. He died August 23, 2006. He spent his childhood in a house with robust spiritual energy. Around two or three in the morning his bedroom closet opened. A ball of radiant light hovered near his bed. A form of communication transpired. What he now refers to as a globule. Over a period of time a face appeared. His deceased grandmother’s face. His father, a police officer assured him there was a logical reason for all the incidents taking place around him. However, these disruptions created a powerful yearning to explain this unsettling phenomena.
Lorraine Rita Moran, was born January 31, 1927 in Milford, Connecticut. The eldest of three children, she was raised a devout Catholic. At school, she noticed various colored lights shining around people’s head. Lorraine realized if she told of her gift; it would be difficult to fit in. So, she kept the auras to herself.
As a teen, Ed worked as an Usher at the Colonial Theater in Bridgeport Conn. There he met Lorraine who accompanied her mother every Wednesday Night to the movies. One night he got up the courage to walk them home and ask her out.
Ed joined the Navy on his seventeenth birthday. After a few months at sea the ship he was on sank into the Atlantic. As one of the lucky survivors, he was given a thirty-day leave. He took this opportunity to marry Lorraine. By the time the war ended they had a daughter to provide for. He needed to generate income. Ed possessed a keen artistic ability. He could sketch landscapes, houses and people quickly and with tremendous accuracy. He had a plan.
They bought a car for fifteen dollars and left Connecticut. They planned on selling his artwork to wealthy tourists in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont. Ed thought up a perfect scheme to sell his paintings. Once he acquired the location of haunted houses in a town. He would stand in the middle of a street or road and sketch the home, adding a ghost in the window or hovering by the front door. Lorraine would knock on the door and say “my husband drew this picture of your special house”. They would sell these sketches for three to five dollars. That is how they became fascinated by paranormal activity.
Usually the people living in these homes, were more than happy to share their stories with the couple. They both caught the Paranormal Bug. Lorraine discovered her ability to interact with spirit entities inside these domains. The Warren’s found their calling. To be continued.
