This December, we held our annual Cousins Dinner in memory of Josh. (As you may have read on this blog before, Josh was the true initiator, planner, and general mastermind behind the Cousins Dinner.) For the Cousins Dinner, Josh always saw to it that our five first cousins (who were in the general Philadelphia area) attended. This year, we all made sure that the get together took place. In the past, Josh selected a Philadelphia eatery, but this year, we held the Cousins Dinner at my recently purchased home. With Mandy in Australia (where she is continuing her studies) and Brett ill with a nasty stomach bug, we were left with five hungry participants. Everyone contributed a food/beverage and we ended up with a quality home-cooked meal. I believe that everyone involved will assist in continuing this tradition in memory of Josh.

Amy (the older of Josh's two younger sisters)
