I was born on November 12, 1932 in Quanah, Texas. I had 3 sisters and one brother. One sister (second child) was deceased at eleven days old, and one just older than me at the age of four. I was baptized into the Church of Christ at age twelve, and have attended faithfully since then. I started to school in Winters, Texas, and attended grade school in Quanah, Texas. I graduated from Bowie High School in Bowie, Texas, and attended Abilene Christian College (later university) for two years. I married Lindel H. Dodson in 1952, and had one son and one daughter. He passed away at the age of fifty two. Both children are married and have families, and live fairly close to me. Between them, I have three grandsons. The oldest just married and gave me my first granddaughter. In 1989, I married James W. Brown, and he passed away in 1997. I was in my last house for forty years. When I got tired of the upkeep, utility bills, etc., I sold my house and moved into a senior living facility near the Memorial Church of Christ, where I attend. I am also across the street from one of the largest malls in Houston, Memorial City Mall. I keep busy doing Bible work, and hand work. This book became my pride and joy. I only hope the people who read it enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
