My Dear Cousin. I never dreamed we would lose you so soon. You were my first cousin, my first playmate, my first friend. I loved you dearly. I know that someday I will see you again and I am a little selfish, that you aren’t still with us here on earth. I know that you are in a better place. Spread your wings sweet girl, because you’ve earned them. Give Red a hug from me and if you see my Mom and Dad and my Son Logan. Wrap your wings around them for me. I love you Candy and I will never forget the bond we had. Always your cousin Colleen.
