To the family of Goldie Conner Cook: Please accept my deepest and most sincere sympathy on the death of your precious Mother. Goldie and I were friends from elementary school through High School and we were room mates when we went to work in Washington, D.C. She was a wonderful person, a beloved friend, and a genuine and caring person. I have many wonderful memories of the two of us as we went through school together. I will miss her greatly. May peace be with you as you face the coming days and months.

My condolences to the family of Goldie B. Cook. It is very difficult losing a love one in death. Almighty God Jehovah promised very soon to restore life to all in the grave. Acts 24:15 There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous. Earthly Resurrection.

Goldie and I became friends as we served on the Altar Guild at Trinity Church. I enjoyed her sense of humor and sharing time in worship with her. Though we met late in our lives, we had much in common and I will miss her. We laughed a lot and found common ground in our religious faith.
