Dear Glenda, Michael, & Renee,
I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your Mom. She always seemed to be a very genuine and passionate person that was all about family. Denver and I enjoyed the times that we got to play dominoes with her. I think all of the Cox clan were domino players. May God bless you and your families in your time of sorrow.
