Family of Vi, especially my (adopted-ha-ha) daughter Cheryl, good friend of my daughter, Marci: I'm sorry to hear of Vi's passing. No matter how long they've lived we still miss 'em. I remember the big old house on Garrett Road and all the great folks who lived there! God bless y'all!

To all of my Cox Cousins:

Your gram (my aunt Vi) will always be larger than life in my memories of life up at the lake house and on the farm. May she now rest in peace. She created a beautiful family in all of you. I hope to see you soon and continue the snow ball fight! She would like that.
