Guestbook

  1. Dear Family of Mildred Fox: My sympathy to one and all in your loss. I remember with great fondness my many visits with Mrs. Fox at the Masonic Home, a most gracious woman with special talents and enormous charm. She lived such a long and remarkable life. We had some wonderful conversations. I recall, among other things, her devotion to family, her courage as she confronted failing eyesight, and the special music program she coordinated for Masonic Home residents. It seems to me that one of her grandchildren was a young child in Clinton when we were there, a schoolmate of our daughter Joyce. My memory could be poor, but that\’s my recollection. Coincidentally, I will be speaking at the school where Joy teaches in Marblehead, MA, as the life of Mrs. Fox is remembered and celebrated at the graveside service Thursday at 1, but I shall remember Mildred at that time. May God, family and friends, and your treasured memories give you comfort. Keep well and happy. Pastor Roy

  2. Laura and Stuart: I have always had very many fond memories you and your family. I will never forget my frienship with Chris. God Bless Richie
