I made a mistake. He was my mother’s cousin

William was my mother's uncle. (Shirley Lytle Capps). Unfortunately, due to distance and life we did not see him. I know she kept in touch with him and talked about him. I am sad to lose another family member without having known him well. Thank you to the friends who put this together and who cared for him.
