I love you, my dear, sweet, kind, goodhearted, innocent cousin. Your special "needs" were anything but. They were special "gifts" that you gave the world. Thank you for choosing to share them with us. Stay close.
The service for my cousin was today. It was in the town he spent most of his adult life in. A small community on the other side of the Mountain. A community that loved him at least as much as my family did. It was warm, funny and sincere. Just like he was. It was perfect. I feel that not only was my family able to grieve and also celebrate him, but we also can now move on to remember him. That is really what we need now. Time to heal. Thank you all for your support...
