I can’t remember exactly what year it was we stayed in 419 Theodora’s room. We have stayed at the Crescent Hotel many times since the first time we came up for our Anniversary in 2006. We always do our ghost hunting when we stay there.
On this day we were staying in Theodora’s room, and it was getting later in the afternoon. I started by asking if she was there with us, and we wanted her to talk to us. We always have our digital recorder with us. Of course on this night it didn’t pick up a thing, but what happened to me when I went to sleep is unforgettable.
I sleep with my face to my husband’s back (because I get a little freaked out still sometimes). Anyway it was around 1:00 or so when I was awakened by a feeling as if I couldn’t breath; kind of like something was on my chest. I was trying to call out for my husband but couldn’t get the words to come out of my mouth. I was definitely awake by then. I had the blankets up to my neck because I can’t sleep with even a foot out. The heavy feeling went away and then the blanket tugged on my shoulder as if trying to get my attention. I was totally shocked at what then happened. I know it was Theadora speaking to me. In the faintest feminine voice she spoke in my ear. She said to me (THEY TOLD ME NOT TO TALK). All I can guess is she was in the room when I was asking her to talk to us and the other people there didn’t want her to communicate with us and to stay silent. I know I didn’t dream this and It’s too far fetched for me to make up. There is so many things that have happened at the Crescent, but this was the most exciting thing that has happened to me. I have had the feeling of not being able to breath and not able to move a few times up there. I think it’s their way of getting our attention. Boy does that get mine. Thank you so much for this wonderful Hotel. I can’t wait for the next time I can come up.
Thank You Sherry T.
