This is not a black or white issue. The Question is did Doris Brooks have the legal rights to sell the church. The condition of the church seems to be the only things the Hanson's are speaking on. If the Hanson's have nothing to gain in this, why don't they just retrieve his monies back from Mrs. Brooks and let the members have their church back, now that he knows there are members? How did Mrs. Brooks speak on the people that were complaining, if she did not know they existed? She did state that she was the sole and last living member!** Mrs. Brooks and her husband (late deacon) is said to have moved their membership prior to his passing to The Mount Olive Baptist Church of Centralia under Pastor Coleman.
