My sympathy to the Cook Family. I had the great pleasure to work with Kathy in the Claims Office at the III Corps OSJA (Fort Hood) in the mid-eighties. We worked hard and laughed hard. Lots of good stories from that time. We got to visit and share more experiences when I returned to Fort Hood in 1997. Kathy loved her family, and I know they loved her. What a dear lady. She will be missed.
