Went to The titanic exhibit in Waco Texas my boarding pass was Miss Edith Corse Evans. Sad to learn that I died on the titanic voyage. Very interesting to learn why she was on the titanic and that she gave up her seat to a woman with children. Highly recommend the titanic exhibit as it’s always been a fascination of mine
