Things have happened in the last few days that have brought all the memories of you to the forefront for Cindy, Debie, Billy and me. It has pulled you back from the warm place in our hearts where you live. It is a strange mix of a bittersweet feeling of the loss again, yet touched with the kind memories of the cousin that you were to us. Memories of the wonderful family times shared. We miss you.
Your name is name never spoken, nor does a thought of you pass, that is not filled with pride for all that you gave.
Cindy has written a beautiful poem for you that I hope will follow in posting.
Our love survives you.
From a cousin - the daughter of Grace's sister Alice Schlagel,
