Today's memorial was very fitting James would have loved. I have known James for 20 yrs to the day. Over the past 20yrs there wasn't a week we didn't talk. I always thought a lot of him. When ever somthing happened in my life he was one of the 1st persons I would call. He tought me a lot. We had a lot of fun over the years collecting autographs. There are so many advetures we've been on while collecting I could write for ever. O really wanted to stand up and say these things today but I know I would never would have gotten them out without crying. James you were a mentor, friend,great role model & over all wonderful person. Your gone but you will never ever be forgotten!
Your friend

So sorry to hear about Mr. Cox's passing. I know he and my father enjoyed their many autograph adventures together and I can truly say James is one of the few people I've ever known that I never heard raise his voice or get angry about anything. My sympathies to the Cox family.
