We/ I miss u Mike, I remember when we were little when grandpa was alive all of us cousins lived in a few different houses together all under 1 roof. And that's all we knew, like brother's and sisters.. I remember we all used to play outside at grandma's houses, or tia Gloria's apartment. And we'd all run around till we're sweaty playing hide and seek, and u loved to laugh all the time and loved to joke around. U have what I'd like to call that "Acosta laugh", ..I'm gonna miss you and your beautiful smile. Till my family and I see u again,I'll always love u Mike...
