My thoughts and prayers are with the Cook family. I am so sorry for your loss. Pap Cook was a great man. One memory I have is how he loved his beautiful baby blue truck
I had the privilege of cleaning and waxing it for him. He was such a kind and friendly soul
I loved his laugh and how his eyes would just shine. He always made me feel like family. He will surely be missed. RIP Pap. We have gained another Angel!

Cindy, Cookie, and Nancy. Beth called to let me know of your dad’s passing. My love and prayers go out to you at this difficult time. I am so sorry I won’t be able to be there to offer hugs in person. It has been a very long time since I’ve seen him, but remember he always had the biggest smile and those big blue eyes. I hope he was not in pain and for whatever reason GOD chose him at this time, that he did not suffer in any way. I love you all and you will be in my thoughts and prayers. You are at PEACE, Mr. Cook.

When you turned around
I was at your hip
Trying to keep up
with your every step.
When you spoke I listened to
every word trying to listen
to every detail to try and do it just
the way you did and do it right.
When I was all grown up I tried to
Make you proud.Your opinion
always mattered.
Today with tearful eyes I have to say
good by to your earthly body…….now
But I rejoice in knowing that
all I need to do is dry my eyes and
lift up my head and you’ll be right
there to guild me still.

I LOVE YOU THEN, NOW,
AND FOREVER DAD.
YOUR YOUNGEST DAUGHTER
NANCY ELLEN
