Dear Cliff, Lisa, and family,
I just wanted you to know that I was praying for you since I heard o the passing of Cook and during her services. May the Lord continue to comfort you and when you feel sadness at her absence give you sweet remembrances of how special she was as a wife, mother, and grandmother. Caring for an Alzheimer patient takes a special kind of love and I know and she knew how much you loved her. With sincere sympathy,
Larry and Ruth

Dear Cliff,
I just saw in the online Sentinel where your dear wife recently passed. My Dad was Enos Zook and he thought the world of you. You have my sympathy. Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers.
