Dear Cousins Neal, Leslie, Ricky, Candy and Joey and families,
i am so sorry to hear of the passing of your mom and saddened that i was not able to attend her service today and maybe offer some small comfort to you in this difficult time. I always loved your mom and remember many fun times with her and you all. She had a fun loving spirit about her and always treated me warmly. I even recall her giving me some advice about girls in my youth, sincerely listening and showing interest. While time and distance have kept us from being closer as adults, I will always value our extended family and fondly remember growing up around you all. I wish you all some peace as you grapple with your grief and maybe we will be able to see each other before too long. My deepest sympathy!

Your Cousin Bink
