I want to reconnect with my cousins who I haven't seen in many many years.
When my uncle died, my father and aunt (his sister-in-law) had a huge falling out. My cousins were young at the time (10 &8) I was about 19 years old. They lived in NY we lived in NJ. Needless to say that rift cause use to loose touch. I went to college, worked, started a family. I remember sending an invitation to my wedding to my aunt and cousins, but it went unanswered. Before my father passed away, he tried connecting with them. It failed. They would be in there 30's now and I'm in my 40's. The age gap is not so bad at this age. I would really like to get to know them. I did some research online and might have their address I want to send a letter. What should I say? "My name is ___ and I'm your cousin" sounds corny. Any suggestions?
