I was born into a warm nest of first cousins, second cousins, aunts, uncles, great aunts and great uncles. Now, only my father remains of the generation above me. And today, the first of my generation has fallen.

John Donne said it best: "Never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee." You were part of my life, Sheila, and I grieve for both of us.

I dedicate this eternal space
To Sheila Louise Button Pace,
Died March 18, 2009--
Rest in peace, Cousin Mine.
