My cousin Paula passed away last night.

She was about six months my senior, and I haven’t spoken with her in ages. Apparently she had numerous medical issues that caused her pain, both physical and mental.

We were great friends when I was a kid, I loved her and David to pieces, but when we moved away, we lost touch. Cousin David is fairly close to where I live now, we need to get together when it is safe to do so.

Rest in peace, Paula. I will always remember you fondly.
