    To all my lil Cousins. I’m so sorry for the loss of lil Steve. I’m so proud of all you sisters who stuck together and took good care of him…GREAT JOB. I’m sorry I couldn’t be there with you, but you were on my mind and in my heart. You can be sure of one thing, when he got his wings – he flew straight to Aunt Mamie. Bless you all and I love you all.
