We have so many wonderful memories of Uncle Sid / Big Daddy as all his grand kids called him. Easters and the confetti eggs. He was so patient and laughed when the kids got him with the confetti eggs!! My uncle dressed up like Santa and I knew it wasn't Santa because I recognized his wedding ring. So many memories. Haley and I will miss you so much. Love you Cox Family.
