  2. I’m glad I got to call you one of my dearest friends David Cook. So kind and gracious and so many sweet memories enjoying dinners, dancing, telling great stories. My favorite conversations were when you would talk about getting to heaven and being with the Good Lord. You and my Dad always referred to Him as the Good Lord and I loved that! Thanks for the goods times and best memories.
    Rest on love🤍💙
