“Lexie Smith Davis was my aunt. My mother loved her. My daughter and my sister are named after her. She is missed. I did not know her well. But I do know that she was a "seeker" who wanted to experience more of life that what our mundane life in Texas offered. I am so sorry that her journey carried her ato and ended in Jonestown. She was loved and we would have helped her in her search for truth if she had allowed us in. I pray to help others. ” - Dorothy Williams Brooks
