Joyce, Carson, Cassidy, and Connor,

We are greatly saddened by the loss of Bob. He was a wonderful husband, father, and friend. Bob was so easy going, caring, and always willing to help.
We looked forward each year to spend the 4th with Bob and your family. We will never forget the year Bob had the Flyer delivered to the cottage. The whole gang watched as delivery truck arrived. We were all excited to try out the new water toy. He has given us many memories and will be missed dearly.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Your "extended family",

Dearest Joyce, Carson, Cassidy and Connor.

We received a phone call from Bob's mom informing us of Bob's passing, we are at a loss for words, Dennis and I are heartbroken, the boys are devastated. We are so saddend by this news, please know you are all in our thoughts, prayers and hearts.
When we moved to Shannon Glen our biggest worry was, What would the neighbors be like? Would they like having three wild boys running around? Little did we know we would soon have four boys as Carson became Peter's instant best friend!! And the boys still have their cheese head hats!!
We were truly blessed meeting you.
We know you are surrounded by love and kindness, we will hold you all tight, and we are sure Bob will bless you and watch over you all from heaven. God Bless, Audrey, Dennis, Matt, Tommy and Peter Gropp.

The memories of Bob and the days as friends in Walbridge will always be in my thoughts. To all, we shared times of fun and experiences that have shaped us into the men and women that we are today. Thank you to Bob for being part of this. Bob was always a great friend to enjoy life, always trying something new, and to have a good laugh. All will be missed.
July 31, 2009
I knew Bob through his joy-filled work at LexisNexis. I am deeply saddened over your tragic loss. I pray that Father God will hold your family in His Strong Arms and that you will experience His Unrelenting Comfort. May you know that our God is indeed the Father to the fatherless...

We are your old neighbors from long-ago Shannon Glen. We just found today about Bob's passing. Joyce, we are so saddended by your and the children's loss. Yet even as the tears flow down my face, I am also smiling and laughing at the fond memories of those early Shannon Glen years. The love and kindness of Bob was evident from the first time we met the two of you. You and Bob were great next door neighbors and friends during the entire time you lived here. Please know that our hearts ache for your sudden loss. We hold you close in our heart and will never forget any of you.
Much love to you Joyce, your children and Bob who now watches over all of you from above.

Joyce, Carson, Cassidy, and Connor,
We cannot express how sorry we are for your loss. We have been praying for you since we heard the news. Steve coached Cassidy in Soccer and Bob helped out a lot. He was a wonderful father and a great man. Savannah and Cassidy have been friends for a long time and Bob would bring Cassidy over to stay with Savannah and he was always such a nice person that we thought a lot of. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family and if there is ANYTHING we can do please dont hesitate to call us. Again, we are very sorry for your loss, God Bless your family!!

Sincerly,

To Diane, Mike and Family and
To Joyce, Carson, Cassidy and Connor,

Bob was a dear friend to me all throughout high school, he and his family played a large part into shaping me into the person I am today and helping to lead me to the life I live, it saddens my heart to hear of your tragic loss. Even though it has been 15 years since I last seen Bob and Joyce at Lake’s HS reunion, I will never forget the feeling of great joy to see him glowing in happiness of his life and expecting wife. Bob was so excited to be happily married and to soon take the role of fatherhood.

May God bless you all through your days of mourning. May you find comfort in God’s love and his Angels above. Robert James Cook, a Son, a Husband, a Father and Friend to many now sits before the throne of our Heavenly Father to intercede and whisper our prayers to Him forever. May his soul rest in peace as you share your memories with each other.

Angel of God,
my guardian dear,
To whom God's love
commits me here,
Ever this day,
be at my side,
To light and guard,
Rule and guide.

Amen.

Joyce, Carson, Connor & Cassidy:

Although we have only met in passing at a Soccer Tournament, we feel like we know you through our mutual friends, The Herringtons. We are shocked and saddened by Bob's passing and our thoughts and prayers are with you. Through all of the stories we have heard, we know what a great man Bob was and know that he led a blessed life. In all of the pictures The Herringtons have shared with us of your various vacations together, we remember Bob's smile was always beaming. You could tell how proud he was of his family. Take comfort in your memories and embrace the time you were able to share in his life with him. You were truly loved and brought him great happiness. He will forever be smiling down on you with Pride. God Bless You!

Dear Joyce,

All of us at Earth Expeditions were deeply, deeply saddened to learn of your husband's death, and touched by the ultimate act of giving that precipitated it. We cannot imagine the pain of your loss, the shock over its suddenness, and the devastation to you, your children, your family, and your many friends. Our hearts are with you, wishing you peace with every step.
July 29, 2009
Bob was a kind and dear colleague who is greatly missed here in our LexisNexis family. His sweet smiling face lives on in my memory. My husband, children and I send every ounce of strength and compassion to you and your children during this terrible time of loss. I know he is among God's army of angels and heros! Joyce, may Bob's spirit ease your tears as you see him in the eyes of your children each day.

Joyce, Carson, Cassidy & Connor,

I really don't know what to say. We've built up so many wonderful memories with you guys over the years. We're all just devastated.

Of course I've known Bob ever since he and Doug started hanging around together (I must've been about 6 I guess?). As Doug's little brother, I always wanted to hang around with the big kids, but most times they weren't too interested in having me tagging along. But Bob was always the exception. I always looked forward to Bob coming over since he was so cool to me.

Over the years the little brother relationship evolved into a genuine friendship, and we had so many great times skiing, riding, laughing and just hanging out. I already miss him so very much.

We'll be there tomorrow.

Dear Joyce and Family,

I have been thinking about all of you since I heard about this tragedy. I would love to be able to say anything that would be uplifting, but words continue to fail me. Hold your loved ones tightly; they will see you through this. Remember that even those of us who don't know your family well are sending our love and strength your way. Reach out for all or any of us; we will do what we can.

May you continue to find strength in your faith. I only knew Bob through you and the stories you shared. The way your face would light up when you talked about him and your children will always inspire me to be a loving husband and father.

Thank you both for that everlasting impact.
July 28, 2009
Dearest Joyce, Carson, Cassidy and Connor--

Joyce, Carson, Cassidy & Connor,
You will never understand the reason why God took you husband and father from you, but, someone once told us something that helped us get through a difficult time and we hope it helps you too.

"People are put on this earth in order to be all that they can be and accomplish all of Gods work. We live our lives trying to achieve that. Those that are taken prematurely from our lives, just have reached their goals quicker to move on to eternal happiness".

I know it may not seem of comfort just yet, but perhaps someday it will. Please let us know if there is ANYTHING that we can do to help during this difficult time.
With love & peace,
Tracy, Ryan, Connor & Ian Murray

Dear Joyce, Carson, Cassidy, and Connor,

Although we have never met, my family feels your loss and has been thinking about you every day since we heard what happened. Bob was obviously a wonderful husband, father, and friend and you and your family will cherish every memory and moment you had with him. We believe that he is up above watching over all of you and that you all will have an angel for life. May God bless you and please know that you will all be in our thoughts and prayers at this very difficult time.

Dear Mrs. Cook and Family,
I went to high school with Bob. I have been praying (and crying) for you and your family since I heard the news from another high school friend last Saturday. Bob was a good friend in high school. My heart truly breaks for you and your children. My husband, children and I were up the coast vacationing in Virginia Beach the same week. The thoughts of what you went through are terrifying.
I have talked to several high school friends since the tragedy. Although we all have lost touch over the years, we are truly heartbroken. We will miss Bob. We will toast to a true hero at our next reunion.
July 28, 2009
Dear Joyce, Carson, Cassidy and Connor,
We are so sorry to hear of your loss. Whether it was at a game, YMCA, or other family event, Bob was always there with a smile on his face, and always a pleasure to talk to. May God give you and your family strength during this difficult time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Dear Joyce and family,

My wife and I have been lifting you up in our prayers since we recieved the phone mail from SHS. So sorry to hear about your loss.

May God give His grace during this time.
July 28, 2009
To the Cook family,
I did not know Bob. Our families were staying in the two homes across from the beach last week. My niece and her boyfriend were on the beach and watched helplessly...praying as the rescue crew searched for him. We have been vacationing in the Outer Banks for over 20 years, and this is just the sort of tragedy that plays out in the back of our minds. The ocean can be so beautiful, yet so unforgiving. I can only imagine the terror, the disbelief, the grief you must have experienced that evening, and the long and difficult drive home to Ohio must have been sheer torture. Please know that although we are strangers, our hearts go out to you. Everyone in our party is praying for your family as you say goodbye to Bob. May God give you all the strength to go on and to honor the memory of this selfless man who gave his own life to save his child.

With our most sincere sympathy,
Lyssa Danel

Dear Joyce, Carson, Cassidy and Connor,
We are heartbroken for each of you and are keeping you all in our prayers. Joyce, our daughters were in your class a couple of years ago and our son played lacrosse with Carson then as well. Your lovely family was a pleasure to be around. May God keep you close and the love and support of your family, friends and community carry you through this most difficult time.

Dear Joyce, Carson, Cassidy and Connor,

Words are difficult to come by as they seem so trivial in my attempt to express sympathy to you. It is so clear to anyone that knew Bob how devoted he was to you all and he will be sorely missed by so many. Cass - I do believe that your Dad is always going to be there for you in spirit, loving you all and rooting on his "Cookie".

Peace and love.
July 28, 2009

We did not know Mr. Cook but we are from Warren(NE), Ohio and we just happened to be walking on the beach in Hatteras that evening. May you find peace and comfort in his sacrifice that evening. And I would like to share this statement by Will Rogers ~ We can't all be heroes, because somebody has to sit on the curb and applaud when they go by. ~

Joyce & Family,

I worked on the team with Bob at LexisNexis for the past two years and always enjoyed his sense of humor and willingness to help out. I could always count on him to give a chuckle at one of my comments. He will be missed and my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time.
July 28, 2009
Joyce, Carson, Cassidy and Connor,
We will always remember Bob as a devoted father, an attentive husband and an enthusiastic man with a zest for life. He loved you all so much and it was evident to all who knew him. We want you all to know that we are praying for you every day.

To My Dearest Cousin,
There are no words in my vocabulary to express the true feelings of loss and sadness I have for you, your children, and our entire family. Bob was simply an unbelievable man. I remember I was very young when I first met Bob, and I remember thinking how big he was. But, as I grew to know him more, I realized his personality, his attitude, and his heart were even bigger than he was, and I truly looked up to him for these attributes. He was great man, and after reading the entries here, it is obvious he has touched many others in the same way. He will be missed by all of us.
July 28, 2009
Dear Joyce and Family,

I am so terribly sorry for your loss. My heart is hurting for all of you. May God's love comfort you and his strength carry you in the days to come. We are keeping you in our daily prayers.

We met Bob through our daughter's family (Johnson). Your boys and our grandsons played sports together. Bob was always such a kind man and always talked to us at the games. We can't imagine what you and your children must be going through. We pray that God will hold all of you in his loving arms.

Unfortunately, we have not been in contact for years and years...I am your first cousin, Brenda (Wolfe) Liston (my Mom, Elsie, and your Dad are brother and sister). I heard about your family's tragic loss and just want you to know how very sorry and heartbroken my family is for you and your children. I have 3 children of my own and can only imagine what you are going through. I truly wish that there was something I could do to help. You are all in our thoughts and prayers. If you are ever interested, I would love to reconnect with you and your family.

We are so sorry to hear about Bob. He was good man who gave so freely of himself to help the youth of Springboro. I am a sure there are a lot of young teenagers that are remembering how he has touched their lives.

God Bless You and Keep You,

I am so sorry. My heart goes out to you at this time and in the days ahead.

Joyce, Carson, Cassidy & Connor,
It is with deepest sadness that we write this note. Bob grew up with our family as we went on many vacations together and we always considered Bob as part of our family. From when Bob was a young boy riding motorcycles and snowmobiles to our latest 4th of July outing, he, along with Joyce and the kids, always had a special place in our hearts. Bob never spoke a harsh word and loved his family dearly and was always there to help. We are still in shock over what happened and our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

We lost a good friend and wonderful person, but God gained an Angel.

Your extended Family,
July 27, 2009
Dear Cook Family,
My family grieves for your tragic loss. I cannot fathom what your family is going through but please know that all of your Springboro family is here for you and the kids.
When we heard the news on Saturday during the youth coaches clinic it was evident how many life’s Bob touched.
My two kids have been fortunate enough to have you as their teacher Joyce, they both are shaken by your loss, we pray for you and the kids.
I will miss glancing from my backyard seeing Bob playing with the boys, working in the yard or washing a vehicle reminding me that I needed to do the same.
If ever you or the kids need anything at all don't hesitate to call on your neighbors that surround you.

I am saddened to hear of your loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. I enjoyed so much being Carson's teacher in 7th grade and have been blessed to watch him grow into a thoughtful young man--the kind of person any father would be proud of. Though it is so unfair to lose someone too soon, I know what a strong and wonderful family you are. Together you can do anything. Love and Prayers-- Jennifer Beachler and family

In this time of sorrow, my prayers go out to your entire family. A father making the ulimate sacrifice in order to save his children is an honorable, admirable and courageous act, which showed the level of dedication he had to your family. As the father of a four year old, I would proudly do the same for my son.

Many condolences,
July 27, 2009
Joyce,

Bob and I started at LexisNexis around the same time, were on the same team and shared a cube wall. I considered him a good friend. I have grown to know your family through his daily sharing of enthusiasm and love for all of you. I can't even fathom what you are going through. Just know you are surrounded by many who knew and loved Bob and want to do anything to help your family through this time.
July 27, 2009
Joyce and Family - I am so sorry for your loss. I did not have the privilege of knowing Bob even though I worked at LexisNexis and we live in Springboro. After reading the entries, I am touched by his warmth and the love for his family. He will forever live on in your hearts. Our family and church are praying for you. Keep your faith and know that God loves you and so do we. God bless you and comfort you, Vicki, Dave, Bret and Lindsay
July 27, 2009
Bob,
You were a great person and friend! I will miss your smile and how you always hit the back of my chair at work to scare me! You are a hero and I will truly miss you my friend! Rest in peace. May God bless you and your family.
July 27, 2009
Dear Joyce and family,

I am so sorry about your husband. I know how special he was to you because I remember all the stories you would tell us in class about him and your kids. I hope you know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and I can only imagine what your going through. Stay strong and know that I care about you, just like you always would let me know if I was down in class.<3
July 27, 2009
Dear Joyce, Carson, Cassidy and Connor:

Our hearts broke when we heard of Bob's passing on Sunday. He was generous and kind to his core. He loved his family so very much and never missed an opportunity to brag about you all. I will think of Bob often and when I do I will picture him at the top of a beautiful mountain in his red Spyder ski jacket smiling down upon us all. I feel so very blessed to have known him.
July 27, 2009
I didn't know your family, but after reading this tragic story, all I can say is "Hero"

Dear Joyce and Family,

I graduated from Lake High School with Bob, and was so very sorry to hear what happened. Doug Herrington and I grew up at Lakewood Church of the Brethren and Bob attended several youth retreats with us. My greatest memory of Bob was when he made the decision to be baptized at Lakewood when he was 16 or 17. A week or two before, he asked me if I would sing the Sunday of his baptism -- and he had a special request! The song he wanted me to sing was Amy Grant's "Thy Word." Of course I found the accompaniment tape and sang it. He was just beaming. I hope that knowing that will give you and all Bob's family and friends much comfort, particularly when you have the time to look up those lyrics and perhaps listen to that song. I have been praying for you and your children and will continue to ask God to give each one of you His strength, comfort and peace as you travel this very unexpected road. Much love,
July 27, 2009
Joyce and family - you are in our thoughts and prayers.

There are no words to express the sadness we are feeling for your loss. Anyone who knew Bob, always knew he was a person who had great values and always a positive outlook on life.

We have pictures of this and would be happy to send you this.If you would like pictures give me a mailing address and we will forward the rainbow picture. May God give you divine peace and love during this tragic event.
