    My cousin and longtime friend. You were my sister-in-law and most of all a dear friend. We did a lot together and we shared a lot in life. We grew up together and watched our children grow up together. The only thing that separates us now is you are at peace and we will all join you someday when our time comes. I wish I coud have had a one time last visit with you to reminice on our adventures together. Rodeo was our stomping grounds and your eyes would lite up when the arena gate opened and you tore around them barrels. My friend you are with your loved ones now. Say hi to my son Jamie Robin Fox..Pats
