    There doesn't seem a day pass by that I don't think of you and John Espenshied.

    It was an honor to serve with the both of you and my hopes that you are at peace.

    May God continue to bless the Cook family.

    You are remembered by so many, and frequently thought of and missed, as are your wonderful Mom and Dad. Many prayers are said for your little Sis.

    Thank You, Captain Glenn Richard Cook, USAF, For A Debt That Can Never Be Repaid. May You Rest In Eternal Blessed Peace, Sir.

    Dear Captain Glenn Richard Cook, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

  • Bracelet

    I wore Captain Cook's bracelet for many years beyond the war and out it away in the late 1970's but always thought of this brave soldier who easily could have been a friend. When I visited Washington DC, I found his name on the wall. I am honored to still have his bracelet. I think about how his loss must have saddened his family. Blessings.

    If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.
