Dear Cook Family,

I am so sorry to hear of Michael's passing. Our families spent a lot of time together when we were very little living in Underhill. I spent a lot of time with Tim because we were the same age. I didn't realize Tim had passed. Please send me Tim's obituary if you would. I didn't realize he had passed. I'm sad over that. I pray your family is holding it together.

I last saw Michael when I was about 10 years old. I have vivid memories of him as a young girl going to his family home in Underhill, Vermont. Even now, fifty years later, I can clearly see that bright shining face that always had a smile on it. Today, as I listened to his service , I was able to absorb a glimmer of the incredible life that he led while enduring hardships that most of us have never known. What a witness for Christ! What a testament to a life well-lived to the glory of our Lord and Savior. Thank you for reaching others , like myself, even after your physical death. Soar Michael, soar!
Your cousin and sister in Christ, Barbara Farr Hall

I think this summarizes the devotion to all the great work Mike did in his life:

“I shall pass this way but once; any good that I can do or any kindness I can show to any human being; let me do it now. Let me not defer nor neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.”

Tom, Sending our warm condolences to you and the entire family. Michael had the spark of life that infected everyone around him. Now he has made the journey to heaven and left the wheelchair behind! I can just see him dancing on the streets that are golden. Love and prayers to all of you.
