    Gary I am so sorry about not being there with you. But I know you understand. So many wonderful memories running through my mind. What a smile is on my face!!
    We were lucky to have had family vacations together as we grew.
    You will be missed, but know what a reunion must be going on with so many going before you. Give hugs all around from me. Save a place at God’s table for when I get there.
    Love always, your bratty cousin.
