"Your decision to join the search for the autistic boy lost in the Dolly Sods wilderness was an unselfish one. You truly wanted to help find Jacob Allen, brother of your friend Micah. You & Adam Raese joined 300 others, mostly adults for two full days of searching in thick underbrush. Everyone who joined in the search was a hero. You're pictured here at home shortly after receiving the text from Micah 'found him!' 2007"

Journaling: "Your kindergarten teacher Mrs. Davis, like many others, helped you form those solid roots and blossom. Your parents nourish you and friends bring rain and sunshine. 1998"
Mary McIntosh Davis received her education degree from WVU in 1953, then studied art under a world renown print maker in New York City. She taught kindergarten in Morgantown beginning in 1967. She was the first teacher from Monongalia County to be awarded a Fulbright which took her to Scotland. She was inducted into the Association of Childhood Education International Hall of Excellence in 1992. Following her retirement, she helped develop the Morgantown Fun Factory. Chris was lucky to have her in class.
