I have many wonderful memories with my mother. One of my favorite ones is when i was little and wasn't feeling good she would tell me the story of the Velvitine Rabbit. I love that book to this day.

It has been many years since I've seen my cousin however the love of our family has always shined bright.
Her dimples were always the greatest feature of her face. I remember as a child wondering if she was or was not smiling and how can she do that. An amazing beauty that will never grow old in my eyes. I love you Cathy.

The first night we moved into the apartments, me Nana and Quinton were sitting the living room all unable to go to sleep. We sat and i made us all food and we laughed and talked about real life stuff, until she got tired and decided to go to bed. She really was like family to me and ill never forget her. She held me when i needed someone to cry on and held two open ears for me whenever i asked her to. Ill miss her❤️

I don’t know why this memory sticks in my head but many years ago, I was with Cathy out for a drive and we stopped at my dads house. He had just made chili and Cathy got some to take home, but she didn’t wait til we got home...., this woman had me spoon feeding her chili as we drove down the interstate. 😂😂😂 lol. It’s such a happy, funny, goofy memory. I’ll cherish it always and the way it still makes me smile.
