    In memory of my Dear Cousin Henrine,
    You suffering is now over. Your strength & courage during your long illness is a testament to your faith in God. The love and support you provided to your family is what our parents taught us to do and you gave unconditionally. You have always been the sweet younger cousin who I always loved, enjoyed talking with and visiting with whenever I was in Va. My prayer is that you RIP with our heavenly father, meet up with family who left before you and be the angel to watch over your off springs. You are a great soul & will be forever missed.
    God Bless and keep your family close to each other.
    With my prayers, thoughts and love,
    Cousin Lorraine

    To the children,
    Henrine will be missed by me and the entire Cooke Family. I have known Henrine all of her life and there is an empty space in my heart. The Family reunions and gathering will not be the same. Ups and down never stopped her. God had His hand on her and will continue to keep His hand on the family she leaves behind. Sorry I am not able to be with you in person, but I will be viewing the service.
    Love your cousin,
