I will always miss my cousin. She was always good to me and could make me laugh at the drop of a hat. Troublesome events were always handles with a funny poem. One time when she had pink eye, she taped pink tissue paper to her glasses. That got lots of laughs. You are gone but will never be forgotten.
Love, Jim
