Aunt Jody, I can’t tell you when the last time I saw you was, but I know it’s been a very long time. I think I was still a baby maybe a little older but I love you none the less. That’s the sad part about being so far away from family….you don’t get to see each other and be part of each other’s lives. I know you are going to be sorely missed by many. I’m glad I was connected with your son, my cousin, Dylan. It means lot to me to be part of the Cook family again…outside of my Dad, Brad. Now you are in Heaven watching over us all. Im glad I have another Angel watching over me. Say hello to Grandma and Grandpa Cook for me and maybe you will see my Grandpa Silveria again. Love you Aunt Jody!! With all my love, Amanda Sherwood (Cook).
