The video was beautiful as I write this through the tears. My baby cousin as I called him even though I was only a month older. He was warm and so sweet, all about family. He called and visited everyone and when we saw him he brightened our day. He always had a smile. He was just like my Dad, Uncle Danny who often reached out to see how all of us where doing. I am sorry I did not call and relied on events and social media to see how he, Donna and all the kids were doing. I will miss the reminiscing and repeating the stories about growing up together, they never got old. How he remembered every detail and always had to help me fill in the blanks. I know he will leave a big hole in all of us, but we can cherish all the memories as we keep the stories going. I know he would like that. Angie will be in warm, loving company now and I hope he keeps them smiling. and on their toes. . Donna and all my cousins, I am so sorry . I will miss him too.
