    Post Rachel Cooke - Missing 3 years

    January 10, 2005, marks three years since 19-year-old Rachel Cooke disappeared while jogging in her parents' Georgetown neighborhood.


    The Cooke family has decided in lieu of having a 3-year remembrance of Rachel's disappearance to give a donation to the victims of the Asian tsunami. The Cooke family also decided to invite other people to make donations.

    Donations may be mailed to:
    Rachel Alert Network
    P.O. Box 1672
    Georgetown, TX 78627-1672

    or


    To make a credit card donation to Rachel's Tsunami Relief Fund:

    An information page has been set up on Rachel Cooke's Tsunami Relief Fund to allow donations through Rachel Alert Network. People may donate through the RAN or give donations directly to the Red Cross, Salvation Army, Save the Children, and many other international aid organization.
    Never let the children, Elders, the sick, or the infirm be exploited.

    A somber day, no doubt, for the Cooke family and for all of Rachel's extended family and friends.

    Thanks for posting this JR. Rachel and her family will remain in heart and in my prayers.
    It's probably too late to get justice for JonBenét. Maybe it always was. But knowing where things went wrong is the first step to not going there again. **-- Alan Prendergast-Dec 21, 2006--**

    I can't believe it's been three years already since Rachel's disappearance, every day of it pure agony for her family, I know.

    I think about Rachel often and pray that she will be found some day.

    It's typical of RC to think of others like the Tsunami victims instead of having a remembrance in their daughter's name. I very much admire all he has done for victims of crime.
    Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry,
    the philosophy which does not laugh,
    and the greatness which does not bow before children.

    Default Rc.....

    What a wonderful way to remember your Rachel and to encourage others in their prayerful rememberances as well....

    You and your family as much as anyone I have ever seen, know the profound sorrow of loss, and know the need for assistance when these losses occur.....Your reaching out to others in such tragic situations has been a hallmark of RAN and of your own immediate family since Rachel's disappearance and so much good has been done in Rachel's name!

    Of course it is our dearest prayer and hope here on FFJ that Rachel will still be found, and it is with certainty that we can say that she will never be forgotten....

    May God Bless the Cook family, her friends and all of the hundereds supporters who have come to love Rachel....

    3 years. Dear Lord it seems like just weeks ago.

    Let's pray that next year at this time our Dear RC, will have Rachel back home.

    I am unaware of anyone who's profited from exploiting the Ramsey murder over a longer period of time, with a greater disregard for the principles of accuracy and fairness, than the production team of Mills and Tracey.They truly do inhabit a different moral universe from real journalists. It's the difference between journalism and propaganda.

    If God would answer just one of my prayers in 2005, it would be for Rachel to be returned to her family.

    When the cookbook was being made I submitted one of my Grandmothers recipes whom has been gone for 4 years. The Cooks graciously excepted the recipe. I bought several books and gave one to my mother for x-mas. She knew when she opened it what it was . She started crying and has shown it to everyone since. Thank you to the Cook's for preserving my Grandmothers name as well as Rachel's. When I open the book to find new recipes I pray for you. This was a great idea to be a reminder of loved ones.
