It is with much sadness to inform everyone that Dick Cox passed away Thursday.   Funeral arrangements are now being made, do not have the full details.  The viewing will be Wednesday the 9th and funeral service on Thursday the 10th. Do not have further information.
Jack Bishop and Marie have been a God send to them.  Jack has taken Dick to the doctors office, run errands and has been there for Dick.  All I know is that Dick has asked Jack to help his wife Sharon with the funeral arrangements.   Jack Bishop has been a son to him and so has Marie, like a daughter to them. 
On Sunday,  April 29th I had the opportunity to be with Jack and Marie to see Dick at his home and just visit and talk about airline stories, my flying now as Delta.  I was hoping to see him when I got back from my PVG trip.  When I did see him on the 29th he was talking,  his mind was sharp, was not in pain.  He was on oxygen and hospice was there.  He was given 3,4 days to live.  When he had his colonoscopy they found some polyps they were removed, but it was too late.  They have no family here in Memphis, but you know that the airline family in Memphis will be there for the Cox family.
Should I find out any further info, I will let you now.  Jack and Marie have been very busy taking care of what needs to be done.  
This is Millie (Perez) and I will do my best to let you know the address of the funeral home.
