About Me

My photo
Behind Every Cloud is a Kindred Spirit (BECKS)I lost my grandfather when I was 17. I had a VERY difficult time getting over it. How could I still communicate with him? I loved him so much I didn't think I could live without him. I read everything I could get my hands on to do with the "afterlife" and that started it all...the love of Ghost Hunting and the Paranormal. I have been researching the paranormal for over 37 years!! It is my way of staying in touch with my grandfather. Being a Ghost Hunter is not always as exciting as it seems on TV. Many nights I have sat in the dark and not a thing happened. BUT it is those times you DO get that one voice, that one explainable picture or have an experience that sends chills down your back that makes it sooo worth it all!!! My purpose of this blog is not to make people believe in ghosts but maybe to open their minds just a little bit... I LOVE this crazy thing called Ghost Hunting. It is as much a part of me as breathing. I am just a girl that refuses to accept we can't still contact our loved ones after they die. My grandfather won't let me.



Yorktown Memorial Hospital,
 Yorktown, Tx
After a long drive down...... everyone just wanted to unload their cars and rest for a while before the investigation later that night.  But I couldn't wait!!!  Deak and I unloaded the car and I told him I was going to drive down to the hospital and take a few pictures during the evening before it got dark.  He said, ok...he would get things ready for the investigation later that night so.... off I went. 

Now, Yorktown is not the kind of town that you have busy highways and traffic jams.  It's the kinda place where you find a bit older, a bit worn-down, framed houses....lots of trucks passing on the two-lane highway that is the main street through town.   The place where everyone knows everyone and the BEST place to eat is at the local Valero gas station.  And one of the MOST POPULAR places in town.............Yorktown Memorial Hospital.  Not because of it's famous doctors or well known facility.........but for its GHOSTS!!!  Just ask any local and they are sure to have many stories about the hospital that they are all to happy to share with you.

As I pull up.....and step out of the car.....the sun is starting to set behind the hospital and in the distance I can hear someone mowing the lawn and silence on the highway as this time of day, even the truck traffic has slowed to almost none.  Standing in front of the hospital, I simple say out loud, "hello my friends" as I had visited this place last year and was counting the days until I returned.
I walked around the outside of the hospital taking pictures and with a chill....... not knowing if it was the wind....... or maybe it was because I felt like SOMEONE was watching me and I WASN'T ALONE.....I suddenly felt the need to peek inside the windows.  And just between you and me....as I walked up the broken steps of hospital.......I can't lie....with a little bit of hesitation and just as much ANTICIPATION ...... I looked inside.  It did look spooky???? hhuuummm Not really.  But it did have the FEEL of a place that held many stories......and stories I couldn't wait to hear!!!!

I stop and think to myself about all the tragic events that took place here.   A double murder, 2000 patients dying, numerous suicides, unbelievable accidents, and countless souls who remain looking for answers.   Can I help?  Can I provide them with the answers they seek?  I'm not sure, but the one THING I can offer them.....is sympathy.  That my heart aches for them. But lets also be clear.....I am a little scared of them....LOL  Especially those with a BAD TEMPER!!! LOL
Well, time to get back in the car and head back to the hotel to get ready for the investigation.  By now, it is starting to get dark and everyone is going to be getting excited about going on our ghost hunt tonight!!!
You know that FEELING that I had that I WASN'T alone......seems I wasn't!!!!  Sitting way up on the top of the hospital watching my every move was a great, big BUZZARD!!!!  NOW THAT'S SCARY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Birds that eat dead things......yyyuuuccckkk!!!!!!!!! Is this just some weird sign of things to come....

  We have a good group headed in for the night.  Several of us from last year returned this year hoping for the same amazing experience with the paranormal.  Mike and Terri Fairfield, Tammy Hightower, Calisa Anderson, and MY favorite person and boyfriend Craig Deacon (Deak).  We did have some new people with us this trip.....Jeromy and Pam Jones of Paranologies and one of their friends(sorry can't remember his name).  But our other new visitors who had never been here before was Chris Anderson (Calisa's husband whom we were soooo excited to have him along) and Rebekah Black who is a radio personality on KLUV 98.7 in Dallas.  We were also glad she could come along.

Picture taken by me. :)

  It's a full moon and we are all packed and ready to go in.  I am looking at the stairs in a different way this time................I am just hoping I can make it up them with my three coats, longjohns under my jeans, three pair of socks, gloves, furry cap, boots and not to mention...the two sweat shirts and an undershirt under them.......oh and did I mention I am carrying two very heavy equipment bags!!!
I kinda looked like the Puft Marshmellow monster in the Ghost Busters moive but this time in black!!!
Let's just hope if I start to fall backward SOMEONE will stop me or I'm liable to roll and roll...... right out into the street and become the first "road kill" that that buzzard says....:
"oh man.....I'll pass on that"!!!!!!! lol

Anyway......you guys ready to go inside and see and experience all that we did?
Well......get ready...........and TOMORROW you will go inside with us and see our videos, our pictures and our amazing personal experiences we had.

This is just going to have to broken down into a couple of different parts because of all the evidence I have to share with you.  See you tomorrow....:)
