    Dear Cousins. I was sadden to hear of the loss of your mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, niece or cousin Cheryl. While I was sadden I was also joyous because I got to spent some quality time with Cheryl earlier this year. Although the circumstances of our meeting were due to the loss of her mother and my aunt she was in remarkably good spirits. Cheryl and I were born three months apart and she has always had a special place in my heart all of our lives. She will truly be missed by all of us but I’m confident that she’s in a better place. Remember,”weeping my endure for a moment, but joy comes in the morning”. Be strong as you memorialize our loved one. Due to a previous family commitment I and most of my family are unable to be with you but know that we love you and that all of you are in our thoughts and prayers. Love, your Cousin, Amelia Lee
