Mel and LaKesha: Thanks for your understanding and support. Yeah Mel, she is with me still, always will be, I think of her and see her crooked smile. LaKesha, sure you are welcome to use my story, perhaps it will impress one of your relatives on the importance. As for younger cousins, I am now close to a cousin half my age, he was a little boy when I left. Due to reunions, we talk on the phone, email and visit each other frequently; I also now know the other baby cousins -- and their children. One other thing I did: I went through my albums and copied several photos of Maxine from a young girl to just a few years before she became ill and mailed them to family members closest to her. That was much appreciated. That was/is our "Mackie" and it is impossible to look at her crooked smile and not smile back.
Thanks for you good wishes.
