Sarah Winchester inherited the fortune made by the Winchester rifle company. Believing that the spirits of dead Indians were haunting her, she went to a medium. She was told that she would not die until her house was finished. So she employed a crew of carpenters.

They worked for 24 hours a day every day for 38 years on that house. There are stairs that lead nowhere and doors that do not open in to anything. The house is a marvelous hodgepodge of rooms and additions and cupolas, but she died anyway, leaving her house unfinished. Most of us will die leaving much unfinished. All of us will die, unless we live till Christ's return
