The Cook family are in our thoughts and Ol' "Haney" will be missed. Got used to hearing his voice on the radio at least once a week when he would call in to sell something on elephant shop 'party-line'. Our thoughts also go out to his wife Ethel as she tries to carry on without her husband.

We all were so blessed to know George. Seeing him on the streets of Riverton, driving his beloved Dodge truck, piddling on a project by his garage and hearing him advertising on the radio his good deals he wants to share. He will be missed greatly Thoughts and Prayers to all of you
