We made so many memories in the past 6 decades I wouldn't know where to begin to share them, but suffice to say, "If I did it - U did it" & "If U did it first, I followed". This included marriages, divorces, business's, travels and even our health issue's. I can only recall 47 days since Springfield H.S. that we didn't talk on the phone at least once per day; usually much more. We shopped, laughed & double dated during H.S. and yrs later lived together & had the same french nanny, BaBette Carendante' that took care of our boys, Bill and Sam. U shall never be forgotten & I pray U R so amazed with the Heaven we so often discussed. What a wonderful friend U have been to me, like no other, my dear sweet Cookie. ps: Larry simply couldn't live without you....Blessings to both Bill and Deborah.

Bill, Deborah & to both of your families: Lewis and I are so saddened & grieving right along with you of the loss of your dear, wonderful Mother (that loved each of you more than life, itself)... The two of You and her "grands" were truly the loves of her life. She spoke about the pride she had in both of her children and grands on most every phone call with me on a daily basis...Cookie was a very unique person & generous to a fault. We loved vacationing at her and Larry's home as much as having her in our own home...If there is anything I can help you with in the coming difficult weeks, please don't hesitate to contact us. Love to you all. Lynda (Sue Graham) Herzog & Lewis Pope ps: Knowing Cookie's favorite color was pink, I'd like the pink roses I sent to be pedestaled at the head of her casket if you don't mind...

I will always remember the day when we all went to Bill house when Allyssa came home from the hospital and we were all there. Di’ parents, dad & Lois, Nick & myself, and Cookie and Larry. Cookie was so happy that day. I don’t remember her being that happy other than when Zack was born. She lived for her grandchildren. You are now a special angel for children and grands Rest In Peace little Guardian Angel.
