I have known all you distant cousins since I was 12 years old. To the end of when she still lived here in Midland and attended the GCR Church of Christ, I remember when she would hold her hands on my head, and give me a kiss on my forehead, followed by a loving hug. We will see all the family again, if not in this world, then surely in the next. May the Lord God be with y'all now and always.
Your third cousin, Darrell Rhea
