Not having a brother, I've always been pretty chummy with my cousin Jonathan, longtime son of my Uncle David. I always have a good time hanging out with my cousin.
Jonathan gave me the unfortunate news though, that he and his wife Jessica will be splitting up soon, and are simply waiting to time the paperwork with the sale of their home.
I remember meeting Jessica my first year of college. Then his girlfriend, the three of us often hung out together on my trips down to Phoenix.
Despite this recent turn of events, my cousin seems to be doing pretty well. But then he's always had a pretty even keel and takes most everything in stride. I'm confident he'll recover soon enough.
