  1. To all the Fox children, especially Shelley and Kay…..I am very sad to hear of your mother’s death. I have very fond memories of her when we were teenage girls. I remember her from our old band and twirling days at LMHS. Also, my mom, Norman Dunten, always admired your mother for her grace and beauty. I am sorry that I cannot be at her funeral, but my thoughts and prayers are with you all.

  2. “Momma Pat” was truly another mother to me while we were growing up. I’m sorry I could not be there today. Know that my prayers are with all of you and how much I love you!
