the way home. Later I realized I had lost my eyeglasses and my work apron. My friend said I must have dropped them running.
The next day we went back to the cemetery to see if I had left them there, and they were neatly folded and placed on the tombstone in the center of the cemetery. We noticed a hand was placed on shoulder, and no one else was there. We heard the same whistling we heard the night before. To this day we believe we saw a British
soldier from the colonial era watching over the grounds. We have returned time and time again, but we have never seen him. As we did research on the cemetery
we found that British soldiers stood watch at night and kept their horses tied to the gates.|

I went to an elementary school called John D Magrath Elementary. It's now Magrath Park on the NCC campus. I was back in town for a friend's memorial service and decided to see some of the old stomping grounds. As I walked around, I came to the hill where the swings used to be. I spent a lot of time there remembering my friend and how we'd swing so high that the chains would buckle. We wanted to swing so hard that we'd go over and around. I felt a breeze, but there was not a leaf moving. Again. Again. I could hear the creak and clank of the chains on the swing set feel the breeze, but there was nothing there. I think my friend came back to the place we met in kindergarten to say good-bye and to tell me that she made it over the bar and around again.
