To the Cooksey family,

I am in utter shock. Neil was one of the guys that I really rooted for throughout my time knowing him. He was a fellow Davidson College alum and a wonderful legislator. He was humble and genuine. He was kind and thoughtful. He got it, and because he got it, the people that he served got the most out of his service to the communities he touched.

I remember him doing a lot of political activities with his lovely daughter, of whom he was so very proud. He and I would often talk about our daughters (my daughter is a little younger than his) and how it was to be proud fathers of such bring young ladies.

Neil is a wonderful soul that was a good man for the people. His God-given light will radiate always and I hope that his example can be carried on throughout Mecklenburg County with his peers and friends like me nationally.

God bless you, Cooksey family. Thank you for sharing Neil with us.

TCNGB (Take Care N God Bless)

It was an honor and privilege to know Neil as a fellow construction lawyer and concerned citizen who only wanted to do what was right for his community. Your illness brought you closer to God and now God has called you home. Thanks for your ministry, Neil. See you soon.

Allyson and kids, I send my heart felt thoughts with you all today..As I heard of the news I remembered how each of you coming in as patients at the eye Dr.'s office would make my day! The love and compassion that you have for each other as a family will hold you during these difficult times. Always take time to reflect on the most amazing memories you had together with Neil. May God give you comfort and peace..

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.
