I have so many memories of family when we visited Jefferson to visit Granny and Granddaddy so many years ago. I especially remember Aunt Mary's house, with the wrap around porch and great banister to slide down!! The last time I was in Jefferson was 1982 to visit Aunt Nancy and I think Aunt Em was alive then. My prayers are with each of you. God bless. Love, Cousin Pat
