I worked in the old nursing home years ago and had quite a few experiences there. Some I believe were from the big tornado. I've worked in about 6 nursing homes and had experiences in most of them, but none were as frequent as in Antlers. The old nurses told stories that would raise the hair on the back of your neck!.|

My children and I rented a house behind a store in Finley. Many old time Antlers families have people in the graveyard in Finley. I rented from a family that owned the store in front of my house. In the dead of morning between the hours of 3:00 am and 4:00 am my family came under observation, for lack of a better word. This happened every morning during this time. While lying asleep, it felt as if a physical presence came quickly up next to us, putting its face so close we could feel the disturbance of space on the hairs of our faces. It was a terrifying feeling. I continued to ignore the feeling in the pit of my stomach. I said nothing to my children. This went on for a couple of weeks. I mentioned it to the owner. She said she did not doubt it. We were across the street from the cemetery you see.
I was determined to awaken during one of these strange visitations. I have a strong mind and can change or escape my dreams, but even though I knew I was asleep and wanted to awaken, I could not. I did manage finally to get my eyes open one night to see my standard poodle struggling and terrified in his sleep. It jarred me to an awakened state in which I felt I was sleepwalking. I shook that eighty-five pound dog out of sleep. When he snapped out of it, I snapped out of it. I went upstairs to wake my teenage son. He frowned and said ''there is no such thing as ghosts, mom. '' Then he said ''But you're right mom, there is something going on in this house. '' I knew he was loath to admit that, so that really frightened me for my children's sake.
I went to the Roland Clinic and got some sleeping pills. My kids went to spend the night with friends, and I went down for the count. The next morning before I went to work I asked my heavenly father to remove anything in the home and the grounds while we were out and to build a spiritual fence about the property to prevent its return. It did not return, which made the thing's motives even more suspicious. While we were never physically harmed by this entity, it made its presence obvious to us. It felt as if its nightly examination of us was aggressive, and that it was getting closer and easier for it to touch us. It was trying hard. .
