You'll never know how much I miss you already.
You were like a sister to me. I will miss the times you and I were able to go out to lunch together. Sometimes to celebrate our birthday's, which were only 3 months apart and only 2 yrs. separating our births.
Even though my Grandmother and your Mother were sisters, I'm so glad my Mother (your 1st cousin) helped me to find you when me and my family moved to Augusta, Ga. in 1971.
I will always Love and Miss you.
Your 2nd Cousin/Shirley M. Shelton.
P. S. In lieu of flowers, I will make a donation to the Wounded Warriors Project.

Yes...Cousin....although we only met once when you were about 14 and I was about 18, we stayed in touch, first by letters and then telephone. Our mothers were sisters so we had a connection, but lived so far apart. Just in last couple of years we were in contact more, but have always loved you.
Rest In Peace ......Beth

I will cherish the memories of sitting in your living and dining room laughing and making fun of my dad. Dale and Coco always had something to say. I love you and appreciate so much the love you showed to me and my whole family. You always lended a gentle ear when needed and cared so much for all around you. Thank you for seeing the best in us, in me! Love, your Angel
