  2. Sorry for your loss. He’s a great man. I remember taking vacations with my parents to see my aunt Carrie and uncle Jack. I remember my cousin John taking me on my first motorcycle ride. I have the scar from it. His muffler burnt my leg as I was getting off. I remember taking his kids to the park across the street from my aunt and uncle house. That’s just a couple of memories I have of my cousin. He’s going to be greatly missed. He touched everyone’s life he came into contact with. This world needs more people like my cousin. Love you cuz. Your going to be greatly missed. Rip.
