Experience description: 

My older sister and I, she was 5 at the time. Were playing in the barn with our pet goat, when we spotted the old fridge, that my uncle had asked my dad if he could store it there. So being kids, we climbed in, and the little goat, kept shutting the door on us, my sister said we can keep opening the door if we kick it hard with our feet, but the last time we tried the door would not come open.  So we started to cry, and it seemed so long that we had been there. My sister and I got real quiet.  It seemed like I was going to sleep. I couldn't hear my sister any more.  Then as I felt like I was going to go to sleep I saw a light, like a light from a candle. Then there was a lady there, she put her finger to her lips and said, "shhh child it will be alright." She had long brown hair and soft eyes.  When i started to cry she said "no, you must be still, your mommy is coming."  Just about that time the door opened, I knew it was opened because i could feel a cool wind on my face. Then that is all I could remember until the next day, when I woke to my dad setting on the side of the bed, he was crying.

Years later my mom told be she had been at the sink giving my younger sister a bath, when she realized she couldn't hear Joyce and me.  So she laid the baby down to go find us, she thought we had went to the old tree house to play, but  as she passed the barn she said her heart jumped and she heard a women say,  "Hurry,"  Mom said, "OH GOD No!"  She ran back to the barn and jerked open the old fridge door, there we were. then she put both of us in cold water.  When she seen that we were breathing ok, she put us to bed, and watched over us till my dad came home. He made sure the fridge was gone that night. She said we were both wet from sweat and that we were hardly breathing, and we were so dark in color.

   I still think of that lady.
