So long, cousin Emily

I haven't talked to Emily in probably 3-4 years. That was the first thought going through my mind when my mom called to ask me "Remember your cousin Emily?" There was an ominous tone of the past tense used after that and I knew something terrible had just happened. I don't get out to Arizona very often so I've lost contact with much of my family there. It didn't really hit me until now, seeing this article about her, but I miss her.
