    Dear Hoxsey Family,
    Our deepest sympathies and condolences to all of you. Richard will be greatly missed. We will always cherish the many fond memories that we have with him. He always made us smile and had such a great sense of humor, like making fun of a .243 deer rifle and called it a b-b gun after missing a deer with it in Missouri! Many blessing to you, his beloved family, may he rest in peace. Love, Chris & Becky Meade

    To the Hoxsey family,
    I am so sorry to read of your loss and send my sincere condolences. How I long and look forward to the time when death will no longer exist. “Death, where is your victory? Death, where is your sting?" 1 Corinthians 15:55
    May the God of all comfort, comfort you in this trying time. ⚘
