My heartfelt condolences to the entire Cook family on the passing of your mother. I was out of town at my nephew's wedding and could not attend her services. She was a wonderful lady who I enjoyed greeting at church on Sundays. May all your great memories of her provide some comfort during this difficult time. Meanwhile, you will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers.

Janet and "Boys" My brother Tom called me this morning to let me know of your Mom's passing into Eternal Life. Please accept my sympathy & prayers. I remember her warm smile and how welcome she made me feel coming over to your house. She was such a good friend to our Mom who passed away over 10 years this coming April. I will remember her in my daily prayers and offer my Mass next Sunday for the repose of her soul, and I ask our Lady of Sorrows to bring you all her Divine Son's peace and consolation. Know that she is now reunited with your Dad, preparing---along with our folks---a -place for us all.
Blessings & Peace
