I just want to say I miss you and I love you dearly and I cant wait to see you again someday. I will never forget the day I found out you were my cuz, from that day on I loved you like I had known you all my life, I will never forget the smile you always had on your face walking into the church. I felt blessed to be there when you passed away and I felt the lord and the angels in the room.
