I am so truly sorry to hear of Mr. Fox's passing. He had touched so many lives including my family. He was there for us when our grandparents and father. Five years ago, he was there when my sister's and I lost our Mom. That was a very difficult time and within 5 months of her passing, our Stepdad passed away(he was more like a father to us girls). Mr Fox will be truly missed. My thoughts and prayers with your family.
