0 - When Jones was a young child, she dreamed that a buzzard flew over her head calling, "I want Elizabeth." She believed in Santa Claus, and recalls the older children teasing her and calling outside her window, pretending to be Santa Claus. She recounts a dream she had in Milan, Georgia, that predicted the man she would marry six years later.
