Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Aunt Sarah was a wonderful cook. She was married to daddy's brother, Jack D. Corrie (We always called him Jackie because that's what mamaw called him). Aunt Sarah and Jackie met in Florida where he was stationed. He was a career AirForce B-52 mechanic. Aunt Sarah has a daughter LaNell who was 6 years old when her mom and Jackie married. I always thought it was so unique that we had another "La/Le" name in the family,as if God kind of instigated what was to be in her future. We always had the best time when they came to visit....especially during the holidays. We never thought about LaNell not being born a Corrie, she just was one automatically. She was our cousin from the first time she enter our house to this day. LaNell now lives with her beautiful family in the Denver area.
