What a special woman always a smile and beautiful laugh. She was so close to my mother, Dell. They grew up together. She was my mom’s first cousin and her and James were two of my favorite relatives. She had a wonderful life but I am sorry I did not get to say goodbye. Thoughts and prayers to Kim, Kevin and their families.
