    June was my cousin and we both went to secondary school together. I will always remember her ready smile and her very peaceful demeanor. She was soft spoken and loving. Even though we did not communicate often and I met her once when she came home, I treasure the times we spent.
    My condolences to her parents, siblings children, husband and friends. Keep the fond memories alive. She would want you to celebrate her life.
