    Aunt Jerry was a very patient, kind lady and thank goodness for that. I am sure it was chaotic when the four Cox boys, my brothers and I were together doing what young cousins do when they all get together. Our families spent some great vacations together over the years. The memories are priceless.

  5. Merry McIntosh-Ledbetter says:

    Jerry was a beautiful person. Very talented seamstress which she couldn’t use too much with all boys. I still have something she made for me when I graduated from high school. I loved her and she was a great addition to our family. I know she has moved on to a beautiful place. I know she will be missed by her Sons and their families and all of friends. Goodbye Jerry.
