Grace, here are some of my happy memories of Richard.
Getting out statements at The Farmers Bank and getting into trouble
cutting up with my grandmother and me. They put me to work early.
He was always so concerned about the elderly black man that had
worked for him so many years. Coming up to Stewart Oil Co. for
the C3 transmission fluid for  his tractor. I did not know that he
had passed away until church this morning. Pastor Llowe made the
comment that he was so funny.

We have come to know Richard very well over the years as he was married to our former 1950 OCHS classmate, Mary Grace Paul.  On visits to our Oglethorpe County parents home, Charles & Opal Harris and Johnnie & Demaris Craft, we stopped off in Woodville to visit, as well as many OCHS Reunions.  We became good Email friends and until he began to lose his eyesight, we exchanged countless Email forwards that usually included an update on our families.  Please know that we love you Grace, and family members.  Our prayers are lifted up during this loss of our friend and your loved one.

Mr. Richard Cook, Ret. Colonel and Mayor of the City of Woodville, will be greatly missed.  Mr. Cook loved Woodville and its citizens. He worked hard to  make Woodville a beautiful and safe place to live.

I am so ever grateful to Mayor Cook for the opportunies that he afforded me to extend my knowledge in the political arena in county and city government.

May God the Creator of all, be your strength, comforter, protector just whatever you all need during this time and forever.

We are so saddened to hear of the passing of Mr. Cook.  He was kind and generous to all who knew him.  We had the privilege of living across the street from him for 17 years and always enjoyed the view of his home, across the pond.   Please know your family will be in our prayers, as you grieve and rejoice the life, love and passion that was, Colonel Richard Cook.  Many blessings of peace and love.  The Browns
