  1. To the Cox Family,

    I wanted to send you my deepest sympathy on the recent passing of Demarius. I was Demarius’ preschool teacher and family advocate when he was enrolled in the head start program at Hillsboro Elementary School. He was such a sweet kid and will never be forgotten. You were amazing parents to work with as well. I continue and will always remember each and everyone one of my students, families. It saddens me deeply regarding your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time.

    Sincerely,
    Julia (Hurd) Barhorst

  2. My name is Irina and I’m 15. I used to live in Hillsboro and now live in Andover. I know I remember how great of an athlete he was. He is in the arms of the father now, that’s one thing I know for sure. God has his plans for everyone and I know his plans for me. My thoughts and prayers
