It is so hard to believe all the adults we grew up with are gone - together again and here we are, missing them and the wonderful times we all had together. I’ve been enjoying the incredible memories I’ve been able to summon and that has been very comforting. I’m thinking of all of you beautiful cousins and your extended families and hope you’re able to find comfort and peace knowing your mother/grandmother is an angel of love and is now resting with all her people once again. Love you all.
