  1. I worked there around 1999, 2000. I did their laundry. They made an in-house laundry facility in the back for me to do so. Sometimes I entered early morning. But I came and left as I felt suitable to get work done. Upon entering at cocktail/bar door…he was there in his beautiful, handsome suit, standing at customer side of bar, looking at me with a very welcoming and kind-hearted gaze. I knew he was a ghost. I was only one there…so early. I said…’well hello there!’ No answer…I proceeded with my doings…talking to him…saying that I’m here for him to help with what he may need people to know or find out about anything about him or another or others in his days of living. He came around me many times in the future…as I worked. He was comfortable. I was comfortable. I never told anyone…until letting you know…just now…right now. He is real. And probably it shows himself to only…absolutely honest people…which…certainly would…not…be any of the 3 owners of the restaurant because they are southern Oregon’s drug lord Burrell’s participating money laundering pets. Burrell has prob passed by now. But his sons continue the scheme. This ghost is kind. No worries. But I’m sure that…only honest…gooood people will see him!
