My dear sweet cousin, my heart aches right now. I know one day I will find peace with your passing because you don't have to suffer any more and you're with Jesus. I will miss the times that we talked and the time you played the big cousin even though you was younger. Lol. I will miss the jokes and laughs we shared (wink). You're an angel now rest well buddy you will be missed.
