Mrs. Bocox(Nana), Autumn and family,
Thinking of all of you in this time of sorrow. I am truly sorry for your loss and praying for peace and comfort for you and your family. Lot of fond memories of him when I was a child and him giving graciously and unselfishly his time and love to our family. He was Autumn's Papaw, but we all adopted him as "papaw Bocox". What a legacy, what a great man!

With sympathy,
Angie Calicott-Huskey
