Larry loved the Lord Jesus Christ, and he served Him to the best of his ability whenever and however he could. He was a great Chairman of the Deacons and church administrator at Mt. Vernon. He was also a member of the choir, and he put all of his heart into singing songs for our Savior. Larry's work continues for our Lord and Savior even today in Heaven. To summarize, Larry was a great man of God who blessed so many of us during his time on earth. May the same Lord that Larry served bless and uphold his dear family during this sad time. Monika and Steve Houser

I extend my sincere condolences to the family of Larry Cook. I worked with Larry during the election. I found him to be a fun loving person. He also made me a flag stand. May God sustain you in times like these. My prayers are with and for you. Wanda Cates
