  1. To my brothers Sidney and Harry Cooper,

    I’m terribly sorry about your loss, I know it must be hard for you at this time, please know that my thoughts and prayers are for you all.

    Over the years I’ve thought many times about all of you and have prayed about the day that we may all reunite together as a family apart from the differences of the past. Tricia and I have talked about how we have missed all of you and we have prayed together for you. Just yesterday Tricia and I were talking about our fondest memories of how Louise and Jess would always give us fresh fish after their weekly catch; I also think often about the time that they took dad and I out on their boat, I was about 4 years old and I was sitting on Louise’s lap. I fell asleep before we even reached the lighthouse and then woke up still on her lap as we were docking, I missed the whole trip then but remembered it my whole life. Tricia told me that she remembered when Sidney and Debbie would come over and how Harry was just always there as her older brother, she said “I was so young, all I remember is Sidney was always nice to me and would hug me and I loved going to visit them at their house and playing with all of Debbie dolls that she had.” I to remember going to Sidney and Debbie’s house playing in their yard and laying on their hammock they just seemed to have the coolest stuff.
    I am deeply saddened for Harry with the loss of his mother, Harry for the first 21 years of my life you were more than a brother to me, you were my friend. I am sorry that all these years have past and we have grown apart, I have been living in South Carolina for the past 10 years and now have four children, my youngest son Seth looks a lot like a picture I have of Sidney when he was around that age of 8 years old. Tricia now to has two children; maybe one day soon we can all go to Ponderosa again like we always did growing up, I would like that very much.
    My biggest hope is that in all of this the love of Jesus Christ with be manifested to you all. 1 John 4:16 And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him. 1 John 3:18 My children, our love should not be just words and talk; it must be true love, which shows itself in action.

    Proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ at all times and when necessary, Use Words
