Jesus On October 27,1961 my Grandfather James Horton Sr. died. He was buried on October 31, 1961. Fairhaven Memorial Cemetery in Santa Ana, California at about 1 in the afternoon. My name was Donna Horton and I was 14 years old at the time. My Family was gathered around the grave site, at this time I was standing about 50 feet from the grave. I rememberbeing worried where my grandfather was and if he was going to be alright!!! The Sky was a solid blue not one cloud in the sky, as I looked up and raised my eyes to the sky, I saw a white robe no feet as I looked further up his hands were stretched out to his side. I looked on up and there was no face, but a white hood that would have covered his head. I remember being scared and he said to me, so not be afraid, you know who I am. I have come for your grandfather he will be with me and he will be fine. To his right I saw a pair of shoes that belonged to my grandfather you can see these in the picture. He was there for about 1 minute. I had a brownie camera around my neck, I decided to take a picture. I told all the adults that day, but they were grriving so they just let it pass. When the picture was developed I tried my best to tell them again what I had seen. They made some kind of excuse that something happened to the negative to get the image that was on the picture. On July 2,2004 my Grandmother Sarah Horton passed away. My cousin Johnny Horton was telling a story about a picture that my grandfather had shown him in 1983 she had in her home, she could not remember who gave it to her or where it came from. Johnny said the picture looked like Jesus he took and made copies and handed the picture to all people that wanted a copy. Needless to say that day I told Johnny I took the picture and I told everyone my story. This was the first time I had thought about the photot I had taken since my grandfathers death. Four months after my grandmothers death my mother found the original picture which I have now, it has the number 6 on the back because I had sent inthe negative and asked for 6 copies.
