    My love and condolences to the entire Cox family. Willie was a good man. I have many good memories of growing up, as your neighbor........shelling peas, climbing the tree just outside your house and ev en the good home cooking your Mom would make. I remember your dad drinking his Pepsi and I was always in amazement when I would watch him drink his buttermilk. He will be missed but I know he is walking with the Lord and is rejoicing with Doris.

    Some of my earliest memories involve Bro Willie, Sis Doris, and family...eating and visiting after church. Later he worked for me and was a true gentleman. His smile, his chuckle and his kindness will be missed. Love and prayers to his family.
