My sympathy goes to Dick Fox's family . I worked for Century 21 here in Tallahassee, FL . And had the pleasure of getting to know him when I did several Open Houses at his property here in Tallahassee. He always had a smile on his face and a kind word to say to me. I know he missed his lovely Wife dearly and his heart was overwhelmed when talking about her and his Daughters and grandchildren. It was my pleasure to get to know him and all the talks we had about Payne Stewart and his garden in his yard and the Denver Broncos and Tim Tebow and Wildwood Presbyterin Church. It was my absolute Pleasure to get to know him. MY life is richer because of it. Heaven has a new Angel... YOU will be missed , but not forgotten Dick Fox. Sincerely Robin Jerkins Red Bird Realty ,of Tallahassee FL
