    I will forever miss you,. Your distinct voice and contagious laugh always put me at ease. I am thankful for having you in my life at such a young age. You were the best, and my favorite cousin. We always got along great . I will always have the utmost fond memories of us growing up together. I pray you always knew how much I cared for you. Thank you for making me laugh when there were times I thought I couldn’t.
    Hang on to the heavens. Gods on his way. There’s no doubt you have your wings. I love you cousin.
    Tears running down my face. Zana
