Johnetta has her wings now and has met up with Uncle Curtis and Aunt Dorothy and the rest of the Cooks bunch in heaven. the doors opeen and I could hear Curtis, Ricahard and my dad Marvin tell her to come on here girl. While Dorothy, Lanova, and my mom Ida reached for her to welcome her home. One thing I leave you with, is that God is with you daily. It will be hard to understand the why, but know that God has placed us all on loan for a little while but we will see cousin Johnetta one day. Love you all from the Cooks-Simoson family.
