I got some sad news yesterday. My cousin Jim passed away. I didn't see much of Jim as a child. I mostly saw his father, Uncle Durant. My dad was the youngest in the family and many of my cousins were older. Jim and his sister, Dorothy were married and lived in Oregon. Uncle Durant would tell me about his train trips out to Oregon. I always wanted to take the train out there to visit my cousins but never got the chance. I met Jim's younger sisters at Uncle Bill's funeral but didn't meet Jim until Uncle Durant's funeral. I started having family reunions and Jim would come. He enjoyed seeing all his cousins and filled me in on the family. My grandmother died when I was 7 and she spent those 7 years of my life in a hospital bed. I never really got to know her. I corresponded with Jim through emails and on facebook until he became ill and was unable to post. I miss hearing from him. RIP Jim.
