The reason for not completing Hartwell B. Compson's Medal of Honor Artwork is due to problems, with finding the entrance to the cemetery area where I felt safe as there was a female meandering around the cemetery and the blackness which surrounded her aura was disgusting and still sickens me to the feelings surrounding her.
