My sympathy to the family. I have known Lois since she entered Heritage Hall Healthcare. She was a wonderful Christian lady and we became friends immediately. She attended most of the activities while at the nursing facility. She loved to laugh and have fun. She enjoyed Debbie and me when we would dress up as different characters at the parties. We loved to tease each other. I told her as long as she knew her name then I would know what mine was. When I arrived on Friday many of the residents were crying. They were really upset over Lois's death. She was so good to everyone. All I can say to the family is I loved her very much and will miss her. Also, thanks to the family for visiting her often. You don't know what that meant to her. You were so lucky to have her for your mother. I made a scrapbook today (of the pictures that I had made of her) in her memory and will try to get it to Larry since he lives in Salem. We were planning to come to Floyd and did not realize that she would be buried in West Virginia. My love and sympathy and prayers to all of you, Lois Wade, Volunteer

Cook family, I offer my condolences and share a consoling thought to help you all in the days to come, Psalms 34:18 "Jehovah is near to those broken at heart; And those crushed in spirit he saves"

Dear Margie and Larry and other members of the family (who probably do not remember me): Sorry to hear about your loss. I was not at the Nursing Home, Saturday, a week ago,and found out about your loss yesterday. Will miss you all and Miss Cook. I saw Miss Cook as a great example of aging gracefully; always grateful and sweet, even in the middle of a lot of life's huge challenges. Thanks for your kindness to me. You are great at making folks feel accepted,special and loved.
