Hal was a great friend and bother-in-law. We shared so many jokes and pranks that we played on one another, over the years. There are a lot of memories that I have and some of them are when we started having family dinners on Fridays. He loved the children and the animals that came to visit. My dog, Heidi, ran to his room, as soon as you put her down, to sit on his lap and give him kisses. That always made him laugh. I will miss you but you will always be in my heart.
You showed me a lot of things,
I learned a lot I didn't know,
But you forgot to teach me one last thing How to let you go,
I know you didn't mean to leave me,
Sometimes we have no choice,
I miss being your little sister,
Hearing my name called by your voice,
I wish I got to say "I Love You"
Before you were giving to the sky,
If god could grant me one last wish
I'd ask to say "Goodbye"
You always meant a lot to me,
I could never love you less,
I Know It's True When They Say
"HE ONLY TAKES THE BEST"
God saw you getting tired, When a cure was not to be. So He wrapped his arms around you, and whispered, "come to me."
You didn't deserve what you went through, So He gave you rest. God's garden must be beautiful, He only takes the best
And when I saw you sleeping, So peaceful and free from pain I could not wish you back To suffer that again Love Always, Gary Pyles, Melissa & kids you will be dearly missed
my thoughts & prayers are with the family
Hal will be missed by so many, he and I spent many hours fishing cutting up together years ago, we had the opportunity to work together on several occasions. Hal set the standard for total love and devotion to his wife and family. I am very honored to have had him as friend.
My heart aches for you Penny.
My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time of sorrow.
You can rest now Hal. We will all miss you.
Hal was a wonderful caring person. I have tons of wonderful memories of him. He was always cracking jokes and saying silly things. He made my childhood so much fun and defiantly entertaining. You will be miss and always loved.
Penny, Doug, Paul, Josh, Sabrina and the rest of the Cook family my heart aches for you. Hal was and will always be rembered as that strong, quiet, well sometimes quiet, man that we all loved! I'm so happy I got to share some time with him growing up. I love each and every one of you!!!
