Nancy and I were first cousins. We were about the same age and grew up with our families spending much time together. Over time we went our separate ways with my wife and I moving to California. She reconnected again with Louise through Facebook. We were saddened to hear of her passing and Louise and I extend our sincerest sympathy to Kip and family.
