                    “From this night forth, I quest and quest, till all my bones together rest.” I died last night in Massachusetts here in my old farm house. It was exactly midnight cold and foggy, while sleeping in my bed I gave up my human form, for what I thought, an eternity of rest. Alas but something dug me up just this night and stole away with one of my bones… and “Forevermore I quest, I quest, till all my bones together rest. Do you know family who has my bone? I will haunt this house 100 or more until my bone is returned to me.
                    Read The Ghost of Nicholas Greebe if you want to know who stole my bone and if it was ever returned to my grave.  (Lisa M. Cave,, North Middle High School)
