    To: My Beautiful Family! My heart is saddened because I can not be in attendance with you today. Cousin A.C. was one of my favorite cousin’s. He was always quiet and humble. He would give you the shirt off his back, if you needed it. I’m sure in his 85 years of life he has taught us to love, be kind and caring. Life is about living so live with respect and honesty. Love the Lord with all you got. Make peace with yourself and other’s. Treat people the way you want to be treated. In order to make America Beautiful, it starts with each and everyone of us. There are some of You, I’ve never met! Only by Facebook but, I want you to know, I LOVE MY FAMILY….NOW PUT A SMILE ON YOUR FACE BECAUSE THAT’S THE ONLY WAY COUSIN A.C. WOULD WANT IT….LOVE TO ALL…COUSIN DORTHENE IN TOLLESON, ARIZONA……
