Not sure what to say?

I only learned of Dr. J.L. Cook passing this morning. I was stunned, he and I have enjoyed many conversations over the 5 years we have known each other. I was impressed and moved by his genuine concern for myself and others, he always demonstrated a keen desire to help me with what ever was asked of him. I considered him a real friend and Brother in Christ, and a tireless co-labor in the harvest field of the Lord. I will surely miss Dr. Johnny Lee Cook and look forward to seeing him again in...

Thanks to a wonderful Christian man...for all the souls you reached for Jesus and for coming to Benson Grove to speak at my graduation from our Bible Institute...It meant so much to me and I will never forget it...I miss you Bro. Johnny but Heaven has a new choir member...You were awesome and so humble...love you always and you too sister Judy...from Kaye Allen

I have never known a man more kind and gentle than Dr. J. L. Cook. He loved everybody regardless of race, color or creed. If you were a human being, he loved you. I am so thankful our lives crossed. He was such an inspiration to me. Every time I went to the Graduation, he was so happy to see me. He always had time for me. He even came to Albany, GA at his expense to help me promote our School. We went on TV, and he spoke on behalf of the School. He made me feel so proud. I loved him...

With our deepest sympathy.

Our prayers are with Johnny's family at this time. We just found out about his passing and are saddened by it. He was a wonderful, giving person. Until we meet again.

I was so sadden to hear of this news. Dr. Cook was a very loving and caring man of God. I hope I will be able to reach out to perfect stangers and show the love of God as he did.
God bless you Cook family. God bless you. He is heavens gain.
Rev. Dr. Robert L. Jones Jr.

As I sit here reading all the wonderful things people had to say about Brother Johnny I am smiling because going through my mind is his "Cook-ology". In some of mine and Tommy's darkest days the phone would ring and it would be Johnny and boy could he bring you out of that ditch fast! When I look back over the years we have known him - he was such a blessing to our family. You and the boys shared him with so many people and I thank you for sharing him with the Register...

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

To the family of Dr. JL Cook... from Bishop Sexton AZ, we are praying for your strength...As I spoke with Dr. Cook at 2013 graduation... I am with you... with all of God's grace.
