After that my son went to his dad's house for a few days. When he came back home he was shaking, so I asked him what was wrong. He told me that while he was with his dad he was hearing static noises that no one else could hear. When we got home I prayed out loud (I used to go to church when I was young and believe in the power of prayer) over him and throughout the house. I literally felt a dark presence with us. I prayed in every room until I had cornered
it in my bedroom closet. I kept rebuking it in the name if Jesus, and then it was gone. The house felt lighter. I have never taken my son back to the
cemetery since then.|

Comment by Lil: Which cemetery was it?.
I used to live in a house on Fairview Avenue in Madera, CA. It was a relatively older neighborhood two blocks away from Thomas Jefferson Middle School and a couple of streets away from the Arbor Vitae Cemetery. There are a number of things that went on in this house that raised some questions. Doing some research on the house I found out it was built in 1950, but no other history regarding its first owners and who has stayed there. So I figured I would share our experiences.
We first started asking questions when we began hearing our stuff moving in other rooms while we were in an opposite room. Sometimes when the dishes were not washed, we would hear cups slamming on the kitchen counter while we were watching TV in the living room. Pictures would fall off the walls. At night the backyard was huge and almost pitch black since there was no street lamps along the alley. You just got that weird feeling someone was watching you. Once I was lying in the dark in my room listening to my iPod I started trailing off in thought about whether I believed in the devil or not. A few minutes later I felt the mattress press down, like somebody got in bed next to me. I looked next to me, and I could see the faint indentation of a body there. I got up and ran out that room so fast. I thought it was just me, but I found out later that other people in my family had things like that happen to them.
