Vangie was one of my favorite cousins. However the last time I saw her was at her wedding. I have thought of her so often over the years but never had the opportunity to visit her once she moved away. She taught me so much when we were very young as we played together at Grandma's house. I will always remember those good times we shared together. Always, Rachael
