I am so sorry for your loss. As a Christian you can have hope in God's mercy. You don't know - perhaps before your cousin died he came to the realization of accepting Christ and is saved. God is great in His mercy. Remember we don't earn our own salvation -- it is only because of God's grace that we can achieve it.
As to what hell is -- hell exists and it is eternal. It is the total separation from God who is the source of all love and happiness.
But as I said - we can always hope and trust in God's mercy.
The L ORD is gracious and righteous; our God is full of compassion. The LORD protects the simplehearted; when I was in great need, he saved me. Be at rest once more, O my soul, for the LORD has been good to you. (Psalm 116:5-7)
