“…she and daddy got married on August 18 that year. If I remember correctly, Aunt Evelyn was either her maid of honor or matron of honor. Daddy was pastor of a church in Fallbrook, CA and momma became a pastor’s wife. They moved to Oceanside, CA and founded a church there which is still an active church today. They also founded a church in Temple, TX which is still active, too. I was born in Oceanside and so was my brother James.”
