I remember cousin Queen being amongst my group of 55 persons in 1997 celebrating my 10 year wedding anniversary. We sailed from Florida on a seven day cruise. We had such a good time. My dad Albert DuHart (her first cousin) along with his sisters Christine and Helen and their Aunt Florence. We enjoyed good food, dancing, music, and shopping. I remember coysin Queen buying Emerald jewelry. It was such a nice family memory. I look forward to seeing her in Paradise. When sickness and death will be in the past. Revelation 21:3,4. Sleep well Queen. Can’t wait to see you with my dad Albert, Aunt Helen, cousin Julius, Nancy along with Aunt Florence just to mention a few of our dear relatives.
