    How grateful I am to have been able to reconnect with my cousin Eugene a few years ago. Our long phone calls and emails catching up on how life evolved for each of us after my parents moved us to the west coast and his parents remained in Ohio brought me great joy. It was so good to laugh together as we reminisced our youthful days and his families' visit with us in California. We will continue to treasure the beautiful walking stick Eugene made for my husband after his knee replacement surgery. I'm just sorry I kept putting him off when he wanted to make one for me. Eugene's immense talent was overshadowed only by his huge heart and compassion for others. I remember how badly he felt when Mom and I visited him and he didn't have a carving to send us away with. He had recently been to the store with his basket of carvings and had given them all away. He said he loved to see the smiles on the children's faces when they chose a small carved animal. I miss you, dear cousin. Until that time we can meet again, save a seat for me.

    May your reunion with aunt Lydia be happy. For you both have been an integral part of my life. I may not have seen you in years but you were never far from my heart and thoughts. Bridget has all the warm open arms of many to help support her during this time of her life and when ever needed. You will be missed.
