From a distant cousin - (William Joseph Childress and my grandfather Charlie C. Childress were brothers). A shame we never met. My condolences to Mr. Troy and all the family. I am in Lake Charles now but my mom still lives in Celeste, so I get there often. She is going on 97. d Donna Childress Haynes, June 24, 2009 My deepest sympathy to the family for your loss.
