I watch ghost and paranormal shows all the time. I have had my own experiences with ghosts and paranormal activity. I won't go into the story, it will take too long. I do want to share this story with you. A survey was taken of Americans and 90% said they believe in ghosts and paranormal activity.

The ghost hunting shows I watch have advanced to using some hi tech equipment and I wondered how they got it and why one of the pieces of equipment was named MEL meter. This is a great story of a father and his daughter that goes beyond life and has helped him create a business and helped people who investigate to have better ways of proving what they find.

'She started doing things like ringing the doorbell, changing TV channels, turning lights on and off,' said Gary who runs D.A.S. Distribution Inc. in East Granby and lives with his wife Cindy and two other daughters, Jennifer and Heather.

'There were situations when my wife would start to make lunch with Heather and Jennifer and all of sudden they'd feel someone come into the room.

'I've been lying in bed and felt someone come down on my side of the bed and felt a weight on my chest, like someone's head.

Gary Galka has used his expert knowledge to create a series of electromagnetic devices that he says allow him to communicate with his daughter

'It evolved into things like feeling a tap on the shoulder, someone calling out our names and it felt like someone was kissing our foreheads.'

Convinced these were after-death communications (ADC's), Gary set about creating specific devices so that he could talk with his eldest girl.

Using his knowledge of electromagnetic sensors systems, Gary created the Mel-Meter 8704, named after his daughter, the year she was born and the year that Gary believes she passed into the spirit realm.

Mellisa Galka died in September 2004 aged 17 after crashing her car into a tree on her way home from a party

Developing additional devices, such as a 'Spirit Box' , Gary has recorded his daughter saying, 'Hi Daddy, I love You.'

The Galka family insist that these experiences are real and that the instruments that electrical genius Gary has created prove it.

The entire family say that they have come into contact with Melissa, even seeing her appear inside their home.
