My cousin Bill's 57th birthday was today. He wasn't here to celebrate it. He died eight years ago of cancer much, much too young. We lost his mom, my mom's sister (and my Aunt Marcia) at the same age. Just eight months ago we also lost my cousin Ned (Bill's younger brother) to complications of surgery for cancer as well. We sure miss all of them and only hope they are having a wonderful reunion with all those we have loved and lost. Happy Birthday Bill. If we can't have a party for you here, hope you got one there! Sure love you!
