James Carl Hook, better known as Pappa, Cowboy, & "Ford Tough," was an amazing man, with a personality just as big as his heart. He not only worked on Ford's, but drove them his whole life. He was on the horse show circuit for 25 years, winning 1976 "Horseman of The Year ," 8 State Championships, & 3 World Qualifiers. He was a US Army veteran & in the Richland County Sheriff's Posse. He loved drag racing, NASCAR, Gamecock Football, & COUNTRY MUSIC. He also loved spending time with his family, hunting & fishing in Orangeburg & in Alabama. Amongst his love for his wife, kids, grandkids, great grandkids, brother, etc... He adored his little dog, "SHORTY." Even though he entered into The Kingdom of Heaven & is now, with his Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ... He'll forever be missed, by those still here, that adored him. HAPPY TRAILS TO YOU COWBOY.

🍁Indeed it is sad to learn that you are mourning the loss of your dear James. This must be a very painful period for your family. Please be assured that our loving God is not only aware of your pain, his word shows that in due time, he will act to remedy it (Rev. 21:3, 4). In the interim, God warmly invites you to trust in him for comfort (2 Cor. 1:3, 4). Please accept my condolences at this most difficult time. 🍂

Sorry to heard of your lose. Here's a brief thought to encourage you. In the spring of 31 C.E., Jesus Christ boldly promised: “Just as the Father raises the dead up and makes them alive, so the Son also makes those alive whom he wants to. Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his [Je- sus’] voice and come out.” (John 5:21, 28, 29) Yes, Jesus Christ promised that millions now dead will live again on this earth and have the prospect of remaining on it forever under peaceful, paradisaic conditions. (Luke 23:43; John 3:16; 17:3; compare Psalm 37:29 and Mat- thew 5:5.)

Dear Mitch, Doreen, and Family,

Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. May you find comfort in knowing he is a much better place. I know he will be missed by so many of us. We always seemed to go to the Bi-Lo on Augusta Hwy. at the same time several times a week before he became ill. He always had a smile on his face and a song in his heart.

Joe & Becki
