June was my mother's cousin. But of course, she was MY cousin too! I remember meeting June in my youth in the late 50s in Ashford, Alabama. I was about 8 years old but I clearly remember thinking that June epitomized to me what LOVE was. I felt the LOVE in her voice, her gestures and her hugs. And all through life as I would see her occasionally, I felt that same gentle LOVE from her. She was as close to an Angel on earth as I ever knew and I will cherish my memories of her forever.
