    1. My girlfriend and I were going up stairs to the spirit lounge to eat. When I got to the top of the stairs, I felt like I had walked through a freezer for a brief second and when my girlfriend asked me what was wrong I pointed to Josephina’s portrait and told her she had just walked through me. My girlfriend asked the bar tender which of the portraits were of the ghost and she pointed to the same on I had.
