(I’ve added my photos to her text, which were taken in the Dunmore Cemetery.)
For me the word “ghost” summons images of Dan Ackroyd in full ghostbusting regalia chasing ectoplasmic blobs. In cemeteries I have seen no such thing, no ectoplasm, no ghosts and certainly no Dan Ackroyd.
What I learned from this group of men from years gone by is that as surely as the autumn leaves flit to the cold ground in their dance of death, life will again flourish as it does every Spring - and go on in this life and the hereafter. No ectoplasmic masses, orbs or strange mists have crossed my path in a cemetery. I have seen only goodness, love and light shining brightly through the veil that separates this life from the next.
