Dear Wayne, Arlene and family,

Joanne and I and the board of directors of the Lakeland Cross Country Ski Club extend our sympathy on the passing of Ms. Cooknell. We wish you consolation in your sorrow. We know that you take strength from your hope in eternal life, the hope of one day being together again with Ms. Cooknell, that comes from your faith in the Risen Lord.

From: Bev and John Johnston
Relation: Aunt

Dear Noella, Wayne and Arlene & Susan,

It was quite by accident that we learned of the passing of Aunt Emily. She was a lovely lady, always ready for a visit from ‘long distance family’. All the family of Bill Cooknell will always remember our visits with her and Uncle Ted. The table was filled with wonderful food, your parents always took time to stop the daily chores and have a wonderful chat with all of us. We all have wonderful memories of those times. Although belated, our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Please contact us by e-mail to let us know how everyone is.

Love Bev and John
