25 years later   Leave a comment

25 years ago my cousin was murdered by her boyfriend because she was breaking up with him.
She was 27 at the time with four beautiful little girls, twins who were eight, a daughter who turned 6 the day her mother was murdered and a four year old.
It was a horrific time and the whole family and our small little town was devastated.
25 years later, she has four beautiful young women for daughters and one grand daughter and five grand sons.
I’m sure she is looking down from heaven with tears in her eyes at the beauty of her children and grandchildren.
Of all my cousins she was my favorite and losing her left an emptiness in me for quite a while.
I often wonder, today especially what kind of woman she would be today had she lived.
What kind of grandmother would she have been.
She lives every day in her four beautiful daughters and I love them all dearly because of who they are and because of who their mother was.
