Funeral Home

My grandmother and my grandfather bought a house in 1942. It was a beautiful 2 story home. And was about 60 years old the time they purchased it.They have been only married 4 months and were very happy to finnaly have a house of their own. (Before they lived with my granfathers parents.) When you walked in the front door you have 2 big parlor rooms on your right and left and a nice sized basement. My grandmother absolutely loved her new home and nothing could ever make her leave it.

After they moved all of their furniture in to it, and got everything situated, they went to bed. About 3 in the a.m she was awoken by the sound of children running around in one of the parlors. She got up to see what was going on and she did not see a thing. So she shrugged it off and went back to bed. The next morning she was outside planting flowers, so was my grandfather. When a woman from down the street approached my grandmother and introduced herself. They talked for about an hour or so, about the neighborhood and the town. The neighbor woman was about to excuse her self when she said quietly "Do you know the history of your home"? My grandmother said no, and was interested in finding out. The neighbor started telling her about the old funeral home that used to be ran here. My grandmother was startled to hear of this.

Nevertheless, after the neighbor left she went inside and looked around. She finally realized why the two parlors were so big. They were showing rooms for the deceased. This frightened her. MY grandfather came in from the yard and sit down in the kitchen to have a nice cold cup of lemonade. As he sit and drank he felt to small hands on his lower back, he turned around and no one was there. He immediately got up from his chair and ran to my grandmother. She was still in the parlor walking around and thinking. He said "Jane, I felt two small hands on my lower back"! She told him that the night before she heard the sound of children playing. Then she began to tell him about what the neighbor woman said about there home. He said "Oh, Jane I do not believe that, that is silly talk."

Later that night after dinner they were sitting in one of the parlor's listening to the radio when out of the corner of my grandmother's eyes, she saw a woman kneeling at the wall. My grandmother was speechless and very frightened about what she saw. So frightened it was like she was frozen. My grandfather looked over at her, and said. " Honey, are you OK? What's wrong"? She mumbled "Do you see the woman kneeling, Do you see her" !! He said no Hun, I do not see her. He started to get a little uneasy about his wife saying this. He said, "Jane I think you need to lay down". So he took ahold of her hand and walked her upstairs to there bedroom. She laid down and fell asleep almost instantly. My grandfather, watched over her until he knew she was asleep.

He walked down stairs and into the parlor were the radio was. He sit down and listened to the news broadcast. After about an hour he became tired. So he thought he would go on to bed. He got up turned the radio off and walked to the stairs. As he came out of the parlor. He was stopped by what he thought was the sound of a strong howling wind coming from out of the kitchen. The next thing he saw frightened him beyond belief. A pine ghostly casket with a woman inside rolled through the hallway and stopped in front of him. He let out a scream of terror that awoken my grandmother. Which shot out of bed and ran to him? She saw him standing, there in absolute shock. She called out to him in panic "George what is wrong" !!! All he could say was " I want out of this house, I want OUT"!!!!! So they packed there things and went to stay with family about 10 miles away in the next town. They arrived at the family's house and told them about what had occurred. They looked puzzled and agreed to let them stay the night. The next day, my grandmother and grandfather and their family went back to their ghostly home. The packed up there things and moved out that very day.
