    My cousin Mary was more like an older sister than a cousin. We had alot in common. Both only children and married young, and had large families, Mary 4 and I 6. I have so many wonderful childhood memories and the last number of years, trips shared together. Artie, as Mary fondly called her husband, was devoted to her and has been such a caring, loving husband. My prayers now are for him as he grieves his biggest lost. The memory of Mary will be in my mind and heart for the rest of my life
