    1. When visiting Harpers Ferry on Oct 19, 2013, it was my son’s 21st birthday. We took the long walk up to the cemetery past the catholic church. I took a few pictures and were only there for a few minutes before my son began to feel ill. He got sweaty and felt light headed. So we walked down the hill a little and he sat on rocks overlooking the river below. I took a couple of pictures one of him as he recovered. When I got home I downloaded the pictures and in two of them there were orbs. One was just as my son was saying he felt ill and the other was while he was sitting on the rock. I instantly felt as though it was my parents (his grandparents) coming by to wish him a happy birthday… but who knows, it could have been anyone…ps those orbs were in no other pictures and I took several in the same area it will only let me download one photo I’ll do another in another email

    2. Here is the other photo from that Harpers Ferry trip that had orbs. This one was taken about 5 minutes before the one of my son.
