  1. Actually saw something my husband and i both saw white light pass the second part of the cemetery. The one at the actual church felt welcomed strangely even at midnight. The other part which i assume is older part of cemetary just a short drive to the right is where we both saw a light. However may been someone in woods not sure but happened so fast we feel its haunted.
