Angel of Hope
by Mary Tsuchihashi
This story was inspired by a beautiful cemetery the author saw in southern California, after attending the funeral of a relative. She wanted to write a story revolving around a lovely cemetery.
Mary Tsuchihashi has always been interested in ghost stories, especially cheerful stories, like Casper, Topper, and the Canterville Ghost. The point of this story is not to scare people, but to give a feeling that your spirit still goes on after you are physically gone. What would you like to do if you had no limits and could open a new page to existence?
