    My Dear Cousin Tex,
    You brought so much light into the lives of so many. I found you in the last month of your life and not only did you reveal yourself to me as family, but you were a wonderful mentor and teacher and I promise to always honor you with my service to others.
    Your Cuz,

    I cherish our friendship and enjoyed many chats through the years while reminiscing about our childhood as a Highland Terrapin on the Highland Mill Village, Griffin, Georgia. Tex & Ray Cobb were inseparable during their childhood and remained best friends for life. I can’t even imagine the void that Ray is feeling now.

    Enjoyed hearing Tex speak of his Coast Guard experiences, as well. I actually thanked Tex for his service to this great nation.

    Tex was richly blessed with his loving family and he spoke of them often. Tex is finally reunited with his beloved wife, Linda.

    I will miss Tex, but will always remember him fondly, for he holds a special place of friendship in my heart.

    Blessings to all of Tex’s family and friends. 💕
