Sunday March 10th, 1996 was the day that my 19 year old cousin was suddenly taken from the world. I was 15 years old and up until that point no one close to me had ever died. His death involved a gunshot and a drug deal gone bad. The entire ordeal took place blocks from my house and after that our lives were never the same. I loved him just like any girl would love her older cousin and although it has been 13 years since that day, I still can't help but wonder what his life could have been. Our lives are only but a vapor!
