The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, He restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

To my dear Postal friend's Carla, Gail & Jackie, siblings & family of Mrs. Cooper, I offer my deepest sympathy. Everytime I had the pleasure of seeing Mrs. Cooper she had such a sweet & pleasant spirit that made me feel welcomed. We see our parent's growing old, getting tired & enduring much suffering but we are never ready to let them go. We believe in the True & Living God Who has given us "Beautiful Treasure's" all of our lives & we know that He is The Sovereign Lord over all things. Even so, it doesn't make the pain of them leaving us go away. I am praying that His undying love & comforting grace will carry you all the rest of your days until you are reunited with your precious Mother & Father for all eternity. As Proverbs 31 says, "Her children rise-up & call her Blessed." My love to you all.🌺

God is our Refuge and strength. A very present help in the time of trouble. My mom (EJB) attended high school with the Burleighs at Douglas High School. Later she and Ms. Cooper both worked and retired in Nursing from the Veterans Administration Medical Center. Their friendship of 75 years was long-lasting. May God bless the entire Burleigh and Cooper family. We will miss you Mother Cooper.
