We became connected through our sons, John and Joe, as they made their way from elementary, high school, sports, college, to careers, marriage and parenthood. They've enjoyed friendship with one another and always had a great group of friends. So fortunate they are, and, in turn, us. As Joe and I were the designated parents to attend the boys Oneonta orientation, we attended several boring agenda sessions and shared a couple of meals with our boys. Always hoped I wasn't too much of a chatterbox, but, even if he thought so, Joe didn't let on because he was a true gentleman. Margaret you always had time for a chat and we'd fill each other in with family news, like becoming grandparents . Just want you to know that, although time and distance have removed us from the ebb and flow, it is our privilege to have had met you all. May you receive that which you need at this moment forward and may God hold you all in the palm of His hand. With heartfelt condolences and sympathy, Rita and John Fox
