She was my Aunt. My wife and I always talk about how sweet she was to both of us.
Several months back a vision of her kept coming to me even though I have not spoken to her for over 30 years.
I missed out getting reacquainted with her and for that I am sad. Life is short, reach out to those who had a good impact on your life while you can.
If anyone can tell me how my cousin Kenneth passed away I would be grateful. To my other cousin Gilbert I hope you live good and Long.
I love you Dave.
