Despite losing the family home in a Mother’s Day fire, the Cornelisons still gather under the carport for fun and laughter. Delaney Nancy, 7, and Emma Cornelison, 8, have their grandparents Phyllis and Jim Cornelison in stitches Sunday afternoon.
The home of Phyllis and Jim Cornelison burns on Mother’s Day on St. Peters Church Road.
Fire did extensive damage in the Cornelison dining room on Mother's Day,
but family members later lifted the vinyl tablecloth and found that it had
saved the eight-foot table. Submitted photo
