  1. Dearest Rudy, Diana, Debbie, Mark and family, We only learned of your great loss yesterday. We share your sorrow. My Mom just loved Alliene & Rudy to pieces! I have a picture of Rudy playing basketball while being cheered on by the two cutest cheerleaders ever, Alliene and Mom. It gives me a measure of peace knowing they are reunited in heaven. She will always be held in our hearts as the sweetest, kindest and most loving gift we were blessed to know. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

  2. Debbie and family,
    So sorry to hear about the loss of your mother! We have you in our thouhts and prayers. Our deepest sympathy! Love, Bob and Nancy Bonner

  3. Rudy and family. I am so very sorry for your loss. The summer of 1950 I eloped with Don B Cook. There was a wedding shower, later, at Mom’s house in Vineland. Not many showed up. Then we heard Alliene’s wedding shower was the same evening. I divorced Don after almost 9 years. By they I was working at Pueblo Army Depot. The next year, 1960, I met and married Stanley McCree Curtis. He helped me raise my 3 kids and we had 2 daughters. I lost Stan to lung cancer in Sep 2007. All my Cook kids called him “Dad” and that pleased him a lot. In 1975 we transsferred from PAD to Fort Huachuca and bought the home where I still live. I see you have a relative in Tucson. Sierra Vista, where I live, is about 75 miles southeast of Tucson. If you have a way of doing so, please send me an email. I have only 5 great grandchildren.
