L.J., Michael, and Toni,
Your mother was a special lady. She leaves behind many memories. I still remember our Sunday dinners at Grandmaw Michel's house and all of us playing in the yard, laughing and running after each other. When our parents die it is like a history book closes. Imagine all the events and things she witnessed in her lifetime.
Sorry for your lost and remembering her smiling face.
Love your cousin
