Mortality bites me today. My cousin who is a year younger than I am, just 60, took a nap because of a bad headache and did not wake up. Her kids are the ages of my girls and her grand kids, too.
She was a childhood friend. I so admired her worldly ways. She was the city mouse to my country mouse. She navigated Lamar park without flinching and the city pool was her domain.
RIP dear Jackie.
