Rikki...it has been a pleasure to be in touch with you over the past 20 years or so. We are related through my father's side of the family, my grandmother Gertrude was your Aunt. Sharing news of the births of grandchildren. Your love for your pets and the horses you cared for. Being proud of both your daughters and their achievements. The worry when Misty was deployed. Setting up your Christmas village with the many additions over time.
There are many memories across the miles and years. Such a shame we never got to meet in person.
Thank you dear cousin for your service and friendship.
Rest in peace now. 🕯
Jan and family in the U.K. 💐
