My favorite memory of Ginny Fox was her sweet smile and loving concern for others at the Family Reunions at Tillis Park. She was a joy to be with and always had something nice to say. I will miss her.

We met Mary a few timess when visiting and she was a very lovely lady. She and Nestor can be proud of a job well done in raising 2 great children. We know their son Ken as he is a brother-in-law and you couldn't ask for a nicer person.
May your memories bring you peace and happiness
