My name is Donnie Jarrell I just looked at the story on marker for Sterling Holloway. I am the one who got this marker for Sterling, he was a close friend of mine, I also had a street renamed for him in 1989 and he was here in Cedartown he loved it all. I have a small museum for Sterling and Winnie The Pooh at our Depo on main street. I enjoy talking to anyone about Sterling. He came to my home many times and I have all his family pictures that was given to me from his family.
