Had the pleasure of knowing the Cox Family many decades ago. A family of love and togetherness. How sad that you have lost your Matriarch. She was the dearest lady to all in her midst. May she rest in peace until the day of Resurrection when we will meet our loved ones again. My condolences to the family in the great loss of a phenomenal lady.
