Remembering Cousin George AKA "The Old Cuz" tonight with much love. He'd bring Aunt Georgia and blow through our lives for a weekend and have us missing him for months. Fish fries, B B Q, Daytona curves, family stories, sight seeing at Lake Sam on Sunday before they left ..he'd request Rock of Ages and tease Aunt Georgia about the beer joints across the river...if she fell asleep. So much laughter...and good memories . Momma thought of him as a brother. Cousin George.....loved and not forgotten.
