My sincere thoughts are with my cousins at this time. My aunt and uncle had an impact on my life.... because of them, I always knew what I wanted out of life... and I have been fortunate enough to live the life I imagined for myself and my family . My uncle and I would periodically speak to each other, and we realized we agreed on many topics. I will miss those conversations. 🎈🎈🎈
