As I grew up and became an adult my relationship with my older cousins grew, well now we can talk about familiar topics and enjoy each other’s company, one of my cousins Eileen I particularly became close to since she was so kind and was always there when I would visit New York City in the summer. Eileen was a very sweet and beautiful both inside and out, we will watch music videos together, talk about the latest trends, and other current events, we will also take walks around the city. In 2002 Eileen became a mother to a beautiful little girl she named Alyssa after her favorite 80’s actress Alyssa Milano. Sadly on July 1st 2006 my cousin Eileen and her little girl died in a car accident on their way to Pennsylvania to enjoy the 4th of July holiday with our older cousin Mabel. Till this day I am in shock and wish I can turn back the hands of time to prevent this nightmare from happening, what is also sad is to have my aunt suffer so much for the loss of her daughter and only granddaughter. All we know as that she is in a better place and one day we will finally see each other on that one sweet day.
