It’s not possible to understand our effect on others’ lives. Our words …. our actions, even the small ones can move mountains. Some of us are blessed to share life with others who do move mountains; people who are uniquely funny, intelligent, kind, loving, giving…

My mom’s cousin, Julie Morgan, was such a person. Julie passed away a few days ago at the age of 91. Although she was actually my mom’s cousin, we ALL claimed her as OUR Cousin Julie.

I’m not certain she would’ve enjoyed the title of matriarch, but, in many ways, she was exactly that … a very wonderful connection to the aunts, uncles, parents so many of us in the Rhode Island / southeastern Massachusetts region have loved. Despite her deep family history, “Cousin Julie” always retained her incredibly youthful appearance. I’m pretty certain, she was the genesis of the saying… “90 is the new 40!”. She always looked so great!!

Shortly after my Patty passed away, Cousin Julie called me. I unfortunately missed her, but have and will forever keep the message she left. That voice ... her comfort so precious to me! She and I did connect soon thereafter; her healing words meant so much. That conversation, perhaps a small thing in her mind, moved mountains for me.

Married seventy years to her beloved husband, Ralph (also my cousin!), Julie and Ralph were the most perfect example of what marriage was meant to be … and what it can be. It’s a miracle one man and one woman can navigate all of life’s challenges and remain standing. They did it!!

After relocating to New York in 1984, I didn’t have the privilege to see Ralph and Julie much. But each visit thereafter, albeit infrequent, was a joy. A couple years ago I was able to spend some time with them at their home in Newport. With a bag of freshly made malasadas in tow, they showed me their beautiful wedding photo hanging on the living room wall. If remember it correctly, an antique oval frame was home to a sepia print of two young kids with that, “what the heck do we do now” expression on their faces.
They have done so very much. They have moved mountains. I will cherish the memories of my Cousin Julie.

My heartfelt sympathies to Cousin Ralph and family… Truly know you are in my thoughts and prayers
