The Lord laid it on my heart to email Commissioner Cooksey shortly after reading about his pancreatic cancer in the online Observer. I explained to him that our Minister of Music, Mr. Phil Chaney, at First Baptist Church - Indian Trail was also fighting pancreatic cancer and I just wanted to share with him Phil's CaringBridge comments in hopes that Phil's faith in the Lord would be an encouragement to Mr. Cooksey. Shortly after sending the email, Mr. Cooksey called me and shared his appreciation for the information, that it was comforting to read Phil's words and know that they shared faith in the one True God, who would bring them through the battle, either on this side of heaven or the other. Though I never met him or knew of him prior to his Observer article, I'm thankful God was able to use me to bring a little light to his life. He and my old choir director will live forever cancer free, praising the Lord.
