Cousin, this is definitely hard for me. You and Andre watch me grow. My heart is very heavy right now. I know my mother (Aunt Lillie) was your favorite aunt. She always gave you that tough ❤. But, we all know that's what made US the strong women we are too this day. I remember coming to visit you & Andre for my summer breaks as your young cousin. I actually looked forward to visit to be with my family there in Wisconsin. If I wasn't with you, I was at Ann or Kitten's house. We would sit around and talk, I actually remember your nickname for Andre (Snoop). 🙂Cousin, I can keep going on and on about the good days we had together.😢❤ "REST IN PARADISE PIG" UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN! I ❤ YOU!

Your Cousin,
Trina😘🙏🏽
