I cannot think about my sister Mildred McCain without thinking of my cousin Tina. As a younger sister and cousin I watched them mature and go out to make a life for themselves. Even though I did it quietly I was always interested in their accomplishments as they served as role models for me. I always felt that Tina was a beautiful person, not just physically but spiritually as well. She had a very humble quality about her.
It was in later life when she returned back to the south and moved to Atlanta that I had the opportunity to spend some time with her in conversation and in prayer. My cousin departed this life after a brief illness and was greatly mourned and missed by her family, friends and community.
She maintained close ties with my sister Mildred McCain, who had also moved back south prior to her death, and they were comfort and support to each other.
I recently Eulogized her youngest sister Liz ( Ann) at the church where we all grew up and it brought back a flood of memories of our younger years, as well as a great awakening to the fact that we are all passing through this world and time is moving faster than we would like to think about.
While we have breath and life it is so important that we tell our friends, our families, our love ones how important they are to us. I love u cousin and may you REST IN PEACE.
