Wow! This feels like a dream to me. It was only two weeks ago at church we talked. And now you're gone. Your work down here was done in such a short time. You were a faithful servant for God. I enjoyed all the good times we had laughing together and just enjoying life. No more pain! You are free now living with the Lord our God. Thank you for being such a wonderful cousin and I will never forget you. We all loved you and your wonderful smile very much! Rest in peace...
