To the Corpening family. Mrs Jessie Mae was a wonderful person. I lived in Catawba and I didnt know many people at Mount pilgrim at the time coming there for service , but she would always make me feel welcome at the church. I will always as I long as I live remember that great big smile that would brighten up my day. Family remember this, that God didnt take her he just received her home.
