Meet my sweet father in law, Harvey Cook. He is the sweetest man that needs some extra prayers. He was recently diagnosed with cancer and will undergo some painful treatments to fight the cancer. If you know Justin’s Dad, you know what a great man he is. He’s a devoted father to all his kids and loves his beautiful wife Anne. He’s funny, was an amazing business man and his credo is all about hard work. No other person had, and continues to have, more of an impact on Justin’s life than his Dad. So you can imagine how concerned we are and what a shock this was to our whole family. Justin has said more than once that in his eyes his dad is “indestructible” and it still hasn’t really set in the reality of the situation. Dad Cook is quite the jokester and always trys to put a positive spin on things. Even when they told us the results of the tests he said, “ I have good news and I have bad news. The good news is I’m not pregnant, the bad news is I have cancer.” Dad Cook has had a great attitude about this and is a man of much faith. He strongly believes in doing everything in our power and leaving the rest up to the Lord. He is someone I’ve come to love and admire as if he were my own Dad. So on Septemeber 8th he will have a surgery to begin his treatment. Justin’s dad taught them as small children to never give up and that when times got tough to draw from that God given strength from within. He called it “Cook Power.” Dad we love you so much, we are confident that you will win this battle. Cook Power!!!
