  3. My dear cousin Chelly, I still can not believe you are gone. I will miss you dearly. That summer we spent at grandma’s was the best ever! You were my partner in crime and spent hours talking and having fun (except when we got in trouble and granpa made us clean the whole house lol). I know you are now rejoicing with grandpa, grandma, Tio Tano and of course Iris the Virus. It hurts me that you are not here with us. I love you always. Rest now beautiful Chelly ❤
