I remember climbing the tree in Granny's back yard when we were little and you wouldn't let me go past the second limb saying that I was a girl and might get hurt. You was always looking out for others even as a little kid. I am happy to say that you are my cousin and I will always love and miss you. Rest easy and tell Granny and Papa we love them
