We had good times together as friends and as cousins, I will always remember you and the good times we had as close knit and everything we experience together. We all must come to closure at some point, our Heavenly Father does not make mistakes when call upon, rest in peace until the final chapter. Love you Cuz! ( KP) James Kilpatrick.
