So sorry to hear that I have lost my dear cousin. Most of our lives together was when we were children. Aunt Dot and Uncle Clyde saw that we were happy, entertained, and well fed. And times that we were together at family get togethers, she and her sister were there with smiles and good conversations. Prayers. Rest In Peace.
