    Will always cherish the memories from the family reunions going up. My first impressions of you were - who is this super cool kid? You took my brothers and I on adventures in the woods at Brandywine Creek state park that I haven’t forgotten about after nearly 50 years. What a lasting impression you made on us. Rest In Peace cousin - until we track through the woods again.
