30 Days of Beauty – day 1

My cousin died. She was almost 101. Her son found her when he went to tell her she had a phone call. She had sat down and died peacefully between one breath and the next in her home. Last year, we had a huge party for her 100th birthday. She had so many friends and family that we had to rent the big party room at my condo.
