2 death in the city

in an interview for a 1995 documentary, jackie's cousin once characterized jackie as being "a very secreative person." presumably, this (HORRIBLE) misstatement was a quirk of upper-class new england accentery rather than a revelation that jackie prized her perspiration. still, it was monumentally bad enough to enter eaton family lore.

i say all that to say this: jackie's cousin, of "she was a very secreative person" fame, has died.

how's that for an obituary?

so how did the cousin die? did you recently write an essay about this cousin or something?

no, no, i am not at fault here. he was 82, so i think he just died of old.
