Cousin Roman,

It has been 9 years since you passed away. This morning I woke up thinking about you and trying to picture what the family looked like in 2007. We were still a big family then, but we are even bigger now. We have been so blessed to add new people to our circle. Some people through marriage, others through long-term relationships and of course new babies. Oh how you would have loved all the new babies. I know in my heart that you had all these little souls with you in heaven before they came to us. I know you told them all about us and helped bring them to us safely into the world. Thanks for that. Thanks for taking care of our Ellie Jess and sending her to us. We love her so.

Today is still a tough day for us. It never gets easier. I do my best to send love to your brother and sister. You must be so proud of them. How awesome was it when Arnie got into 805lide? And it's it so nice to see your sister so happy. Her BF is sweet, kind, and patient with a 1000 watt smile. He reminds me of you in those ways.

There is some comfort that you are with Tata now. I hope you two are making up for the lost years when you were there and he was here. I hope that you are together watching the family grow and love and connect with each other. Have a good time celebrating the day of your birth tomorrow. We will all be celebrating you!

I hope you know how much we miss you and how family pictures will always be missing you in them. You are my family and I love you so much,

Love Your Big Cousin,
