Rest in peace, cousin, you are now in the arms of our angels, who have predeceased us. I am certain that they are enjoying your "Elvis" music by the fire at night. I am sure it's beautiful joining our family up in heaven. We will miss you and thank you for your years of entertaining us, at Pa and Aunt Annas house. Love you, cousin...
