Subject: [Q-R] Cemetery Report: May 3, 2010 Holy Sepulchre Cemetery Part 7
Date: Wed, 12 May 2010 18:56:31 EDT
Out the big door at 4:34AM and its 70F/20C already, much to hot for this
time of day. This will be my 7th trip to Holy Sepulchre Cemetery.
Got to Tim's off of Rt 104 and Lake Ave exit at 5:55AM and its 73F/23C here
Got to the cemetery at 6:25AM and its short sleeve shirt to start with and
all day. And to think last week when I was here I had 1/2 a day of snow
flurries and my Arctic coat on.
To answer a few questions first:
Sorry, no I haven't fallen into any graves new or old lately, when it
happens it happens, I don't control it, nor do I look for holes to fall into.
No, I haven't found any human remains so far this year.
And finally, no I have not seen any ghosts, nor have I ever seen any
ghosts. This seems to be a real popular question by many and since 1966 in
cemeteries, I aint(< and that word is because I went to parochial
school...........LOL) seen a ghost.
Believe me, I'd be the first to tell all of you about a ghost or anything
strange happening in all my cemetery visits day or night, but it just hasn't
happened. Nothing I can relate to the supernatural.
I have reported a few odd things in the past but they are called
But let me give you a quote on the subject:by Samuel Johnson (1709-1784) "
it is astonishing that since the creation of the world, it is undecided
whether or not there has ever been an instance of the spirit of any person
appearing after death. All argument is against it, but belief is for it."
Good, bad or indifferent, you get all the details of my cemetery visits.
And no, nothing strange on any photos either.
And no, my mind isn't not closed to it, I try to be very aware, but it just
hasn't happened yet.
On the other hand, most people who believe and have seen the dead in spirit
form claim,"If the spirits of dead people truly survive the grave, what
better place to seek them out than in a cemetery."
And yes, I would like it to happen.........................I've got tons of
questions.................. and lots 'O film. :)

of Joseph Jones
Who eat whilst he was able
But once o'er fed

And fell beneath the table
When from the tomb
To meet his doom

Since he must dwell
Take him, which gives best dinners."
