Together Ed and Lorraine Warren have been paranomal investigators for over 60 years. Although Ed was called home in 2006, Lorraine continues today at 87 years of age. Preceded by Harry Price in the United Kingdom, Ed and Lorraine are pioneers in paranormal reseach when it was frowned upon or even considered close to heretical and/or hallucinatory. In their long career, Ed and Lorraine dealt with ghosts, apparitions, hauntings, levitations, possesions, exorcisms, curses, demons, devils, witches, warlocks. werewolves, orbs, psychic photos. the Amityville Horror, and a bewitched farmhouse that is the story behind the movie The Conjuring.* And that movie barely scratches the surface of the experiences of the Parron Family or Ed and Lorraine's life experiences.**
|Today, ghost shows abound on TV and internet involving the famous to ordinary people next door. Self anointed experts and demonologists proclaim with dogmatic certainty what lays beyond the veil and what you must do (beware when fools rush in where wise men fear to tread). And so many claim to be psychic or sensitive who can see things no one can verify. In some way or another, all these owe a debt to Ed and Lorraine who blazed the trail and took the heat of disbelief, ridicule and criticism. It was only later that they were recognized and appreciated. Their courage and dedication to use their God given gifts to help people "haunted" "possessed" or dabbling in the occult, and their strength and witness to bring to the public these stories and their own findings, is due to their authenticity and unique God given gifts. They don't walk on water or wear halos and wings, but they are in touch with them. Their faith guided and protected them, both from human and inhuman attacks.
