    As long as I have known life I knew Cook. He was the one we called on if we had a water issue and he was one of my Dad's friends. I will never forget the mop incident with him and my Dad. I often think of it and laugh. I remember a time when him and MayAlice were at our house in Bonnerton and somebody was playing the piano and everybody was singing. They are now reunited to sing in heaven. I loved seeing him smile and that is what I will always remember, his smile the laughter he brought and how happy he seemed with life. To the family remember the happy times and find joy and comfort in them. He may be gone but he will forever be in your hearts.

    Mr Smith was a sweet soul and I am glad I got to know him, his daughter Cutelia and the kids! I will never forget the day he sang with me, "Sitting on the dock of the bay..." and swinging his legs at his bedside. He is now singing in Heaven with his loved ones and Our Heavenly Father! My condolences to the family!
