It is with sadness but also with joy that I am announcing the death of my Father, Paul B. Fox. We’re sad because separation has come but we have joy in knowing Dad is not sick anymore and is in the presence of Jesus. Dad went home yesterday Jan. 20th. He was 84. He loved to play and sing Gospel music and wrote many Gospel songs, several which were recorded by The Primitive Quartet. Please pray for my Mother and all of our family. God’s grace is amazing and is always there exactly when you need it. Love you all, Randy
