El Dorado, Arkansas will be represented in the 2013 Rose Parade in Pasadena, Calif. The late David Fox who died at age 48 of a heart attack was an organ and tissue donor. A large memorial floragraph of him will ride on the Donate Life float, alongside 71 other portraits honoring deceased organ, eye and tissue donors. His widow, Liz Fox of El Dorado, will go to California to put the finishing touches on the floragraph, which uses crushed herbs and flower petals to follow the contours of David’s portrait.
