    Tonya and BB My Dear Cousins, Saying Goodbye to a Loved one is never easy. If only I could absorb some of your pain, I gladly would. Rest assured Cousin Fruit is smiling, laughing and in a much better place. He clearly beat the odds that were given to him. My Deepest Sympathy to you both. Rest in Paradise Cousin Fruit. Love you all.
