    Mrs. Fox, I spoke with Denise Sharp this morning and she shared the news of Mr Fox’s death. I am terribly saddened by the thought of his loss to you and your beautiful family. My sincerest hope is that you, and each of your children glean strength from each other and the legacy of love he leaves behind.
    Please let all of your family know that they are very much in my thoughts and prayers this day.
    My fondest memory of Mr.Fox will always be relaxing at home in his chair, master of all he surveyed, surrounded by the incredible children he fathered, all made possible by the wife he loved and who loved him, for more than 50 years.

    May peace be with each of you,

    Tiny Chick Fernandez
