Kathy Cox, from what I heard and what i read, she was a wonderful loving person. Me her grandson never got to meet her but heard wonderful story’s about her. She passed before i was born and it affected my dad (her son) severely. Know i may not know much about her but i know she was a great mom and she raised the best son that could ever be raised and i am so happy to have someone to tell me story’s of her and tell me about her bravery and what she did. I also got the privilege to be named after such a amazing person. Happy mothersday Kathy have a wonderful day up in heaven.
