My heart is heavy...


Yesterday we attended my cousin's memorial service. She lost her battle with breast cancer last Saturday...smiling to the very end.

On my yearly Summer visits to Florida as a child...we were pals, confidantes, partners in crime. We played in the sand and sun, spit watermelon seeds off our grandmother's back step, shared popcorn at the local movie theater as we watched the latest Disney movie.

So many childhood memories wrapped around this gentle Southern girl.

Rest in peace, my sweet cousin, you will be sorely missed.

Enjoy the day,
Robyn
