  2. Yo omg so my friend brought me with him to pay his respect to his friend tonight on holloween not anything about the place and the whole time I kept seein this black shadow in the distance and kept hearing what almost sounded like a party in the distance and then just stop and the light on the building kept flashing stranglly when we would walk bye it that shit was def strange

  3. I not only heard children playing, I saw them!
    There were 4 girls, wearing those one piece play suits I used to wear in the 60’s – and one boy who had a red and white striped tee shirt on. There was also a dog with them. I was walking on the path that runs along Wakelee Ave. I thought they were real kids so planned to turn left down one of the other paths – I didn’t want to startle them. I noticed there were no graves where they were. As I walked I looked away and when I looked back they were standing still watching me. I looked away again, just for 2 seconds! and when I looked back they were gone. I then noticed there WERE gravestones where they had been. I often walk there in the day time, and have not seen them since.
