“I was devastated. I was crushed. I was hurt, heartbroken,” said Marjorie Lee, a family friend.

The last two days have been filled with tears and frustration for Lee.

“She was like a daughter to me, and I love and miss her,” said Lee.

Outside of photos and memories, Lee only has one thing to remember Cook by, a ring that was a gift. The family is trying to raise money through a GoFundMe page. The money will go towards Cook’s funeral and taking care of her children.

“They’re gonna need this because they lost a good mom. They lost a good person,” Lee said.

Lee wants people in the community to remember Cook for her loving traits.

“She was compassionate. She was sweet. She was caring. She loved her baby. I know she did. You can see it in her, she loved that baby,” said Lee.
