My dear sweet Cousin, I wish it had been where we could have spent more time together through the years! I can remember the summers at Big Mama's. There was you, Vickie, Charlie and me. Sometimes Mousie would be there! We would always pretend we were country singers! You were always such fun to be around! Great memories! I found this picture of you and I. Thought I would share it! Love you! Until we meet again Cuz! R.I.P.

RIP sweet cousin. I will always remember the good times when I came to Dumas and you took me under your wing. I got to go to a party with you and your friends and the first time I ever got to go to sonic and you got me a Vanilla Coke. I thought I was something special. Love you and you will be missed.
