I got to meet my cousin for the first time a few years ago at a family reunion. I remember thinking how funny she was and happy. She and I had a beautiful talk sharing our lives. I can not thank her enough for her openness to me and our "posts" over the years. I will greatly miss her. Love to her and all my family!
