C o n n i e H i n n e n C o o k - A Memoir

Connie Cook and I became acquainted when I first discovered Authors' Den and read some of her work here. I wrote to her as an admiring fan. Connie's poems spoke loudly to my heart! We continued to correspond by email, becoming close friends and encouraging each other. Connie urged me to begin posting my poems.
We often used our middle names in writing emails. She's Connie Jean and I'm Connie Marie. Our names were just one more thing we had in common.
Lord, I love this gal!


Two Connies met
on the internet;
They hit it off so fine.
This is no joke --
As each one spoke,
She said, "I admire the way you rhyme!"

"I love the poem
you wrote today,"
"And I love your work, too."
As time went on,
they forged a bond
and became friends, loyal and true !

They quickly found
their hearts were bound
as sisters in the Lord;
No wonder when
each took her pen,
they honored God with one accord!

Now Connie Jean
has left the scene;
moved to her heavenly home.
Though no one knows when,
they'll meet again;
Together, they'll write a new poem!

The words will be
a symphony;
They'll sing for joy together!
To God, their King
worship they'll bring;
They'll live with their Lord forever!

This tribute you see
is from Connie Marie
in memory of my friend --
C o n n i e   H i n n e n   C o o k
T h e   B e s t   in my book --
Our friendship will never end!

I know we'll meet
on a golden street,
in that city filled with light.
Until that great day,
Oh, Lord, I pray,
Let Connie's life influence all that I write!

Connie passed away January 16 after an illness
of several months.
I'm sure Connie Hinnen Cook has been special to many Den authors, as well as to all who read her poems.  I know you will  take time to fondly remember this
unique and precious woman with me,
and to thank God for the privilege of knowing her.

On January 16, 2003, Connie Hinnen Cook wrote a poem called Metamorphosis.  You can find it on her Den.  She wrote it exactly 4 years before her "homegoing."
Her Den is listed under the letter H for Hinnen-Cook.
When you get there, you have to select poems, then on the left side there is a box with info, and at the bottom it says, "more poems"  and you have to select that.  You should be able to find Metamorphosis then.

Oh my Connie! I'm so sorry to hear this. I loved Connie's work and have always read her since she first came to the den. Having been sick and absent myself recently this is the first I've heard about it. I can understand your grief you had a fine friendship. She will be missed, but I'm so glad we know where she is and one day we shall all meet her there. God bless you Connie and keep writing your splendid poetry! Thanks for this!Eileen
