Thank you family and community, Justin Cook

Dear Mom,

I want to thank you for always being strong for our family, no matter how hard things get. These past two years have been harder than any of us could imagine they could be, but you make sure we come through everything, even when it’s hardest on you. I know how much it must take for you to get through some days, but you get through them and still have your heart open for us. Your love and your strength are what our family is built on. I don’t know how you are able to love as much as you do, especially when people are really hard to love sometimes, but I admire you so much for being able to give that much love. 


I’ve always known that no matter what, you always loved me and I always had your support. There are so many things I need to and want to thank you for, but most of all for teaching me how to control myself and get through stressful situations and hard times. I know that I will be leaving home one day and making my own life in my own place, but I also know that you will be there for me – even when you aren’t able to be there physically. And I know that all the things you taught me and the example you’ve set for me all of my life will help me be the kind of man I want to be. Thank you for everything.


Love you,
