The following report was sent into our website by Clara on Feb 22, 2011:
“I was working in this special care home in Penetang. I have a lot of stories about this house but I will just tell this one. As I was running down the basement steps to change the clients laundry over I ran smack dab into a ghost that was just coming out of the laundry room as I was going into it. This annoyed me because I was in a hurry. So I stopped and turned and said “for petes sake will you get out of my way, I’m in a hurry. So you just stay out of my way”. It was like looking at smoke. But once I said that it just vanished into thin air.
Now that night I did not think any more of this encounter, and I had sleeping quarters there because I was the night staff. As I was sound asleep around 2 a.m. I heard someone say in a very loud harsh voice say “Clara”. I jumped out of bed and went to the door, for I thought that one of the residents needed my help. No one was anywhere in sight. I went around and checked the whole house and every resident was in their beds asleep. So I went back to my room and lit my candle and said to whoever or whatever to leave me alone “I have to get up in a few hours and I’m going to sleep so get lost”. Then I went right back to sleep until 6 a.m.”
