Family members from California to Brooklyn, N.Y. and many points between came to Corsicana to celebrate the birthday of an important lady. The theme was “Then and Now,” and the color scheme was green and gray.

“It was a long time in the planning,” said Davis.

Expressions of love were given by Aaron Radford, Fred Watson, Leslie Watson and Rayana Watson. “Then and Now” facts were shared by Byron Watson. The Happy Birthday song was performed by Tessa Price and the Watson brothers, then the cake was served.

The celebration closed with acknowledgements by Donald Watson, and a closing prayer given by William Watson.

Guests were present from Lavon, Texas; Plano, DeSoto, Denver, Colorado; Atlanta, Georgia; Raleigh Durham, N.C.; Brooklyn, N.Y.; Freedom, California; and Austin.
