The first time I met you and all of my cousins in 1974, you stood out as my favorite. I remember you and I forging an instant bond. I was also drawn to your mom, my Aunt Bobbie, with who I stayed in touch over the many years up until now.
You and I lost touch over the years but I never forgot the time we spent together that summer in 1974 when I came to visit the US.
Melody, I hope you will find peace in your new journey after life. You will be missed by many. Goodbye, cousin!
