Foxx was my work partner. We worked together for 23 years. I just helped him the day before with his finger prints to turn in the next day. I even reminded him the day of the accident to turn them in. We made a promise to each other that we would retire at the same time. I miss hearing his voice and his phone calls to make sure that every Friday we ate fish for lunch at his favorite place. I miss you Foxx and so does Tracey
