  6. This message is for Ellen and her entire family,
    For all the times I’ve spent with you and John Ellen I’m honoured to say the least. You and John have accepted me as part of your family too and I’m grateful for that. I will always remember John for first of all the love he expressed openly for you Ellen his only wife as he told us many times jokingly. This love that John had also shone on his entire family. I think John was a wonderful husband,father grandfather and great grandfather. I was very lucky to watch him interact with those he loved so dearly. I also appreciated Johns sense of humour. He joked at every chance he could. John had a love for life and especially a love for his wife Ellen. Truly to have had this much love to give is recognized by me as the highest honour in life. I’ll miss you greatly John. God Bless 💗
    My thoughts and prayers are with Ellen and the entire Cook family.
    With my warmest regards,
    Love Susan Hutton

    Ps -Steve just want you to know that you are also a very loving man just like your Dad. Hang on tight ! We are one big family 💕 Love you all guys !!
