My dearest grandfather, I am so grateful and thankful to have had such a wonderful man as you to call my grandpa. I am proud of your accomplishments in the navy and all your many stories of your time serving. I am so proud of your accomplishment of raising my father to be the amazing husband and father he is today. There are so many moments that dad would always remind me that you taught him this or that. Thank you for instilling hard work into our family as a core value. Thank you for caring and loving me unconditionally. I cherished every birthday, Christmas, and graduation card. Thank you for all the times you took me to get happy meals as a kid. Thank you for teaching me how to keep making life fun and to always find the humor in it all. I miss your witty sense of humor already. The smiles you brought to everyone's face from the joy of cracking a joke from absolutely nothing was priceless. Thank you for being such a good listener. I love you with all my heart & even though you are my last grandparent to pass on, I know that I will see you and them again one day. I am so absolutely thankful and grateful for that because it gives me enormous comfort that you all are now in a better place with no pain, no hardships, and no sorrow. I love you grandpa always and forever! Love always your granddaughter, Maureen Cook

As you know, I am Roy Cook, Arthur J. Cook, Jr.'s grandson. My favorite memory with my grandpa is whenever I would mention my guitar playing, grandpa would say "Like a rhinestone cowboy" (referencing a song from the late Glen Campbell hit "Rhinestone Cowboy"). This would always make me laugh and smile because grandpa always encouraged my playing of the guitar. I will never forget that.
