Mrs. Cooper, Dean and the entire Cooper family, what a pleasure it was to have known Mr Cooper. I will always remember him for his mastery of the grill and his roaring fires he would build in his fireplace. He was a wonderful husband and father who raised two outstanding sons. He will be missed and may he rest in peace.

We were so blessed to have been friends with Jim, a true "southern gentlman." He always showed an inerest in you and your family. Always greeted you with a big smile. He was a great golfing buddy and we always enjoyed our dinners out with Carol and Jim. He will truly be missed!
