    July 11, 2016 by Bobby Warner

Something rustled in front of him in the shadows and a thin, shrouded figure shambled forward, boney arms outstretched, and said, in a raspy voice, “I’m so glad you’re here at last, for I’ve been waiting for you–or someone like you–for a very long time!”

  4. Where?

    December 17, 2011 by Mathew Ferguson

    There were well-meaning people in the support group who found solace in that mound of dirt above their loved one’s coffin. But she could never relate and seldom visited the cemetery.
