To My Dear Cousins:

It is with the deepest sympathy I say with you farewell to someone we both love and care about. Although there are miles between us and contact has been few, I thought of your mother, my cousin often when I was passing through visiting my mom.

Be strong my Dear Cousins. I am sending healing prayers and comforting hugs. And know if you need me I am only a phone call away.
