At Palo park, there is a pavilion with a barbeque pit and a small playground. Noted as the only Park in Palo, as far as I know, I went there with my father when I was tweleve years old for my birthday.
As I was looking into the woods, I noticed a drop-off to a hill rolling downwards. To my surprise, I saw a cemetery. I wanted to get a closer look so my dad took me down there so I could see the name of it.
It read, ''pleasant ridge cemetery''. I went to that Park often and I was consequently left alone there while my dad went to the restrooms not far from there. I was so fascinated by the sights of the front, I counted the stairs.|
My grandma called it ''thirteen steps to hell'', which made it even more fascinating. I did see something there. I walked to the top of the stairs and I sat there for a moment. It was already a cold day, but a breeze out of nowhere picked up and I became frightened.
I stood up and looked across the old graves. At the corner of the yard, I saw a white figure sweep across the ground. A tall figure, maybe a lady who never found peace before she passed away. It was very slow, but I was not alarmed.
I felt a lot of emotion passing throughout the grounds. Something told me to go to the corner of the graveyard, where I saw this ''white figure''. I looked for women's names and sure enough... A lady who was buried there in the 1800's was sure to be found.
