Dear Cousins Jackie, Bill and Family,
I know that you're grieving now, but may you be comforted in knowing that as time passes, your hearts will heal enough for you to cherish the special bond that you had with your Mother and to remember all of the beautiful memories that you had with her over the years. Cousin Dorsey was a special lady and I'll always remember fondly some of the fun times we had together when I was a teenager/young adult. She will always be one of my most favorite older cousins!! Love you all so much. Hugs and Kisses, Peggy Lynn and Family
