Within a month.

My Dad's cousin.

My dad had cousins we met once in a while.They stayed in the capital and visited us occassionally.They were clannish,extremely sophisticated and respectful because my father was older than them.They had children who seldom registered and had to be introduced afresh everytime we met .In other words we never grew up together.
In the early 2008,all of a sudden three men of their family passed away.Two were sudden and one was anticipated.As we watched the scenario from a distance one wondered who would console whom.Each family member left had lost someone from their immediate family who was a pillar for them.To make things worse the matriach of the family was still alive.
