Condolence from Zona and Stephen Hatt on June 18th, 2016 4:57 pm

To Mrs Cook’s Family,
To know your mom was to love her.and yes she loved her” bling”. Always ready to give a hug and that beautiful smile when ever our paths would cross. She was an ” adopted ” grandmother to most of every child in Brooklyn including my husband..He adored her, but who could resist for she had the soul of an angel. When our son was born she would make the comment ‘ I wonder if he knows what a fortunate child he is ‘. That wonderful sparkle in her eyes may now be closed here on earth but there is now a new star sparkling in our sky. We pray that knowing how much kindness and light she brought to others over so many years will help as you grieve the loss of this gentle lady. May the Lord be with you all. Our deepest sympathy.
Zona and Stephen
