You stood by your parents, your siblings, your friends, your husband's through their illnesses, and you stood by me as I in turn lost my family members, now I'm hurting because you left me.
May God hold you forever in his arms, for you are an angel.
I will miss your infectious laugh, the way your eyes would light up when you saw family, Rest in Peace cousin.
My condolences to your family and siblings.
