Cousin Joey,
My dad sent a picture of you and Auntie Carolyn at a wedding, and you have been on my mind. God knows that I miss you so much. Your beautiful daughter and cutie pie grandkids came to visit me a couple of weeks ago and she turned out to be a beautiful woman and mother. I want you to continue to rest in peace and make sure the family stays safe in heaven. Give Aunt Ceil a kiss from her baby girl. Truly loved and missed.

Lorie James-Jones
First Cousin
