    The thing I realize now in looking back at those distant years is how very close some of us were as cousins---the next thing to a brother and sister---and often due to age, closer at that time. Some times brothers and sisters were to be tolerated, but cousins were best friends. I have just edited this last section and removed several paragraphs 23 July 2006.
