What is the Church's position on ghosts of deceased loved ones?

My nephew has seen and spoken to his cousin twice since his cousins passing last month. Both times the conversation were positive as in “be a good boy and do good in school and do not listen to bad people” I am wondering where the church stands on this issue. I am in need to finding out the true meaning please can you help me?

Thank you and God bless,

Virginia Mosqueda
