To the Editor:
We would like to take this opportunity and this source to express a heartfelt thank you to some people for their efforts to solve the case of our brother and family member, Charles R. (Butch) Cooksey Jr.
We wish to thank Assistant District Attorney Bobby Hibbett, Sheriff Terry Ashe, Chief Deputy Larry Bowman and Assistant Deputy Robert Bryan, first, for believing that we had a case even after all this time. We would also like to thank them for working so hard and in some instances on their own personal time, to locate witnesses and take statements, many times more than once. Always professional yet always compassionate.
We are all indeed fortunate to be able to claim men of their caliber with their willingness and abilities working in and with our Wilson County Sheriff’s Department.
Clark McKinney and the kind people at Ligon and Bobo Funeral Home. You stood with us from the beginning and helped to make this painful time bearable. Thank you for every kindness.
To all those who had the courage and good heart to come forward to help our case and to those who offered their support through prayers, cards and calls, please know that we will never forget you. May God bless you every one.
Connie Cooksey Minick
and the Charles R. (Butch) Cooksey Jr. family
