      with our family dynamic.  Those cousins have this huge family and act like bullies to the rest of us cousins. They think they run the family and the town and they are often crass, rude, and nasty. I think some of it was survival, they had to be tough in that big family and outspoken, blunt or get ignored.

      But my aunt with all the kids was Mom;s only sister and she worshipped her older sister, my mother.  After Mom died, she more or less turned into someone I no longer recognized. See Mom would be her source of emotional support and keep her on kilter and not put up with her antics.
