“I know everyone in this church. In fact, I’m related to most of them. Second and third cousins. She (points to the woman sitting next to her) and I are kissing cousins. That means that her dad and my mom were brother and sister.”
“My dad helped build this church. Put on his button-ups and got his ladder out and put that roof up. My husband and I have been married 64 years.”
