My Grandpa Was A Fantastic Storyteller

...So i'm not sure if this is true or not. He may have been pulling my 8-year-old leg. He talks of a time when he was staying long-term in a hotel, but with a shared bathroom and kitchen. One night, he got up to use the restroom without turning the hallway light on so he wouldnt wake any other guests. He did his business, and flushed. As he was washing his hands, he glanced up in the mirror and swears he saw something behind him.
Jumpy, he left the bathroom quickly. And then, during the short stroll back to his room, he was gripped by a sudden sorrow unlike anything he'd ever felt before. On a whim, he turned- and was staring straight at a glowing orb, hovering a few inches from his face. He took a step back, and then it started floating, very slowly away from him.
What makes the story creepy, not just interesting, is the fact that when he woke up the next morning, he learned that the elderly mad who had lived two doors down from him had died last night in his sleep- minutes before my grandpa had seen the strange, ghostly orb.
