- This Connecticut Dad lost his daughter, but claims she's still connected to him.
- His paranomal interest and electrical engineering background led him to start building products for ghost hunters.
Gary Galka knows better than most that a father's love lasts forever.
The Granby, Conn., dad lost his daughter, Melissa, eight years ago in a car crash. Galka says that his connection to Melissa remains strong, and that he constantly feels her presence. That connection led the electrical engineer to design what he says is a digital device for paranormal exploration -- or ghost hunting.
"I've created over 30 different products for paranormal research," Galka recently told The Hartford Courant. He and his family were featured on a Travel Channel show called "Ghost Adventures," which explores paranormal phenomena. Using one of his devices, a voice is heard on the show saying, "Hi Daddy, I love you."
"No one was making products for these people," Galka said.
Galka's devices -- which range in cost from $79 to about $350 and are named for his daughter -- are sold through the Professional Measurement website, which calls them "the only professional measurement instrument line designed exclusively for paranormal enthusiasts."
