…The ghost: A woman (relative to my partner) died in the neighboring building and her ghost has been seen by myself, my partner, and his family. Not only seen but interacted (nail polish spilled, her favorite dress missing and she being spotted in it standing up on the hill, then the dress returning like she borrowed it, and her face in windows and mirrors)….
…As I followed the car over the rise, I realized that–quite suddenly–the car was no longer there. There was no where it could have turned off, and the road wasn’t in good enough condition for it to have sped up enough to be out of sight….

They both seemed to have dark fur that stood out around their faces, and deep-set red eyes, and that’s about all I could really see in the dark. They would press their face close enough to the window that the little bit of light from my bedside lamp would catch their red eyes, and I could see the outline of their shape, because they were darker than the night sky….
…I couldn’t find Joe and Marta’s headstones: I remember them being right next to the gate and being incredibly easy to find. I searched for that entire extra hour and never found them, even though they should have been right there, by the main path. Who we did find was my spouse’s great Aunt Alice’s headstone. That was cool because my wedding ring was made with diamonds from her wedding ring….
