Not sure what to say?

She was a very sweet inspiration to everyone who knew her

Mrs. Cook, was one special lady. Always smiled and had a very sweet laugh. Her and her family have been a large part of my life and you could always call on them for anything. I know she is in heaven with all her loved ones and no longer in any pain. She will be an angel looking out for her family she left behind. Thank you Lord for sharing her with all of us, and putting your arms around the family, at this time of sorrow. Mrs. Cook, you will be so missed,,, I love you always..... ...

I will miss Aunt Bobbie! She was an amazing strong woman and loved her family fiercely! She always made us feel welcomed! I wish I could be there, but I am praying for Gods peace and comfort for all of you. I love you guys!

Loved getting together with her and having lunch that last time I came to her house in Oakland. such a nice day.

It was an honor to be a part of her health care team at NHC Somerville

Joey & Cheryl Jacquez love y'all
My sympathy for Amy & Tim Bobbi is a Beautiful Woman her smile and love for people. Knowing her was a greatness for those that came to know her.

So grateful God placed you in our lives. A much needed dear Christian mentor and friend to our mother. You went above and beyond being a neighbor. I sincerely hope our heavenly mansions will have a connecting gate. I picture such a sweet reunion of many from the old days of my childhood and I'm thinking of you with Jesus! I'm keeping all who love you in prayer for comfort and peace in all they face. Your precious family is special to me. You are already missed so...

So sorry for your loss! She was such a great example of a Christian woman.

Mrs. Cook was a sweet and special soul. My wife and I and Family will miss her!❤✝
