To all: I'm so sorry about Ox's death...too soon.I have special Xmas cards put to the side to hand deliver this year & of course he was one of those cards. I have thought about him often & never made it down...how I would have loved to have seen him.From what I had heard & then reading about poylmyositis it was a hard road for him.Even though he is no longer in pain those left behind are now suffering.Please accept my condolences-he was always good to me with all that went on-back in the day.He had a good heart.My love to all of you & will see you tomorrow. Luv,Sally

Gail (and entire family),
Please accept my condolences with regards to your dad. I haven’t seen you in forever, but my heart goes out to you all. Hang on to good memories, grieve as you need, and celebrate his life. I won’t see you at the wake as I’m in Tennessee until Tuesday. In sympathy, Wendy (Sally and Terry’s daughter)
