Dear Dorn, Britt and family, I was surprised to see this. I was trying to contact your mother to give her some important info about your dad having unclaimed property that had been turned over to the State of South Carolina which she needed to check into but could not find her info to locate her. I am so very sorry to hear of her passing. My mother was in Hospice there and passed May 14th. Your mother was a wonderful person and she will be missed. Take comfort knowing you still have family to lean on and they will be there for you. Put your faith in God as He is the one who will give you the strength to get through this sad and hard time and for always!!! I am you cousin Brenda Fox Hoff. My dad and your Grandfather Charles Fox were brothers. I love you all!!
