  • Dear Justison Family,
    My siblings and I were sad to read about your Mother passing. (She and our dad John Cook were 1st cousins, as their Mothers were sisters.) We always had fun when visiting your house. I would see her in New Castle years later and we always had a chat. We are sorry for your loss and wish you well at this time. Sincerely, Joni Cook Handy
