For My Cousin Anthony

Today, my fathers side of the family is celebrating the life of my cousin, Anthony Lowe. I’m still processing the shocking, sudden nature of his passing. It’s one of those times when being so far away from family is hard to swallow, but I’m certainly with them in spirit. Anthony was a few years younger than me, and gone way too soon. Out of respect for my family, I will leave his story untold for now because there is still so much to process. I can only take comfort in knowing that he is finally released from the pain of his circumstances – so here’s to my cousin, my childhood friend… RIP, Anthony.
