  1. in Mnt Olivet Cemetary, when I would pass through on Ashland ave. around 1:00am I would almost always see a mist go across the street from the cemetary and then disapeer. I have seen this numerous times.

  2. The gate was locked with a chain while I was in the cemetary with my car! It was almost dark and I saw no one, I cannot imagine someone did not see me or my car. I thought it was a bad joke but now I’m not so sure?
