Wanda, I remember when cousin would come to visit mom (Mary Warren) in Kings Mountain, NC. My mother loved to fish and cousin Dorothy would always accompany her. I remember how they used to talk about the days of their youth and visiting the Jackson home place for family gatherings. As mom is 105 years old now, she will 106 in July (God Willing), she will not be able to be with you during the going home service for cousin Dorothy, but please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you. Love, Dorris Warren-Adams/Mary Warren
