Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same; but as God calls us one by one the chain will link again.........

Us cousins grew up together, loved, laughed, and had fun together. Growing up and playing at Baba and Papas house, playing in Ransom, going to the park and uptown to get a pop and more recently into adulthood the annual hayrack ride and cook out at Chita's, she always made us laugh. We will miss her sweet personality and wonderful smile. Fly high sweet cousin and rest in peace. Love, Bill and Lu
