    Cousin Ralphie, We had some great times. I will never forget the rides on the blue scooter. Yeah, I was cool. My big brother riding me! We were so much alike, minus a few things. But we always had each other’s backs. I always watched for you coming for lunch when you were in Lynn. Say hi to the rest of the family for me and watch over Sherry and Shannon, they’re hurting real bad. And of course the rest of your sisters and nieces and nephews. Hold it down up there, and save me a spot. You will always be the my other half of our free spirits. Gonna miss you wise cracks, check her pockets!! Much love Cuz. To all my cousins, my heart hurts for you, Ralphie will always watch over you. Special prayers and love to my cousin Sherry, you spent every minute with your brother, and slept there every night. And believe, he knew it till the last minute. God’s peace to the family.
