James E Cox
His life was filled with music,
which we were blessed to share.
At parties and each Flag Day,
he’d sing with style and flair.
In youth he’d sung with renowned bands
and played on his trombone.
With us he always had a way
to please us with his baritone.
His gift to us…a winning smile
that lit the room as he would sing.
A score of Flag Day services…
“God Bless the USA” brought zing.
If there’s a band in heaven,
and I am sure there is,
Norm now sings to angels
with that flair of his.
We will always miss him,
although he’s held within.
The cords will always bind us,
and he’ll remain therein.
