Missing you, sweet cousin! Brandee and I have been in contact a lot this past year. I know she misses you terribly. She has such a good heart and her hubby really loves her, you can tell. And omgosh, I saw Rhett over Easter and he looks just like you! Seriously, twins! I sure wish you could have met my SIL, his dad and his brother (all LEO’s). I think you would have approved! I think of you so often, as do my sisters, mom and dad. I love and miss you.
