In Loving Memory, Sheldon A. Cooper

This is a terribly distressing matter. Due to process timing, we barely have 4 days to meet our goal.

Sheldon Ashleigh Cooper (Squeeker) is my son, the apple of my eye.  He was born and raised in Colorado and moved to Georgia and began developing a new life for his family.  That is why  writing this about him is so heart-breaking and unreal.

Sadly, 6 weeks into Georgia, his life ended suddenly, untimely at just 34. Not only was he a protective supportive son, he was a loving, caring fiancee, a warm fuzzy father, a helpful creative grandson, a great brother, an incredible brother-in-law, a witty, comical cousin and a fun uncle. He was driven and determined, a candle light that never waned. He was loved by everyone from family to work to those practicing Brazilian Jiu jitsu. But because of his sudden passing, our family was taken completely by surprise and we are not financially prepared for the expense.

Again, due to process timing, we barely have 4 days to meet our goal! A goal that allows us to say our final good-byes and honor his passing.

If you can help us with any donation toward Squeeker’s funeral arrangements, no matter how small, we would greatly appreciate you! Please feel free to share this to all.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and for your donation.   May God richly bless you and your loved ones, Resa

Our family wishes to convey our sincerest appreciation to EVERYONE for your prayers, your generous support and kindness.

Thank you to those of that were able to take the time to attend and celebrate Sheldon’s life with us on such a wonderfully snowy day! We thank you for the hugs, the stories, the memories and the tokens of love and support that you shared and warmly handed to the family. It meant a lot to hear and know how Squeeker touched so many lives, leaving an inspiring chain reaction.

We will always remember your kindness and expressions of sympathy at our tremendous loss. We know you are grieving with us too.

My son was truly blessed to have the support of friends like you and again, we are thankful to EVERYONE for all you’ve done.

I would like to leave you with these words from the program of my great Aunt Una’s passing in the late 80's:

Perhaps you sent a lovely card, or sat quietly in a chair. Perhaps you sent a floral piece, if so, we saw it there. Perhaps you sang a cheerful song, if so we heard it all. Perhaps you prayed a sincere prayer, or came to pay a call. Perhaps you spoke the kindest words, as any friend could say. Perhaps you were not there at all, just thought of us that day. Perhaps you prepared a tasty dish, or maybe furnished a car. Perhaps you rendered a service unseen, near at hand or from afar. Whatever you did to console our hearts, by word or deed or touch; Whatever was the kindly part, we thank you....oh so much!

- The Family of Sheldon “Squeeker” A. Cooper

May God continue to bless and hold each one of you close,
love, Resa

Dear Family & friends. Thank you oh so much for helping us reach half of our goal so quickly!! My family and I are astonished and appreciative of the out pouring of love and support from every one of you! We have read your kind encouraging words over and over and from them, we gleaned a special strength.

Squeeker would be so pleased to see and feel the support and emotion you all have shared on his behalf thus far. We could not have gotten even this far without the goodness of your hearts.

Once we have most of the arrangements set, I will post the date of his Memorial Service to be held in Colorado for those who love him there. With that said, we still have a ways to go financially. Please continue to share this link.

Your prayers and generosity are just wonderful and comforting. I love you all!

May God continue to bless each and everyone of you!

I have been asked how Squeeker’s life ended.

As a little diapered tot of 16-18 months, Squeeker began showing a protective, supportive nature. Those qualities continued to develop. By the time he became a man they had fine-tuned themselves with a mixture of inspiration and an altruistic spirit.

These characteristics led Squeeker to recently become a plasma donor. Not only was this gesture a support to his family but the endeavor also provided a substance that can potentially help save the lives of others.

On Tuesday, December 12th, Squeeker was in the donor chair. Suddenly, his heart just stopped beating. We do not yet know why.

Even in death Sheldon, a son, fianceé, father, grandson, brother, cousin, uncle and friend, continued showing his benevolence. Unknown to me, a tiny heart with the word ‘donor’ was printed on his ID. My baby boy had registered to be an organ donor. I was overwhelmed in many ways.

We saw to it that even in death, his altruistic wishes were fulfilled.

Thank you for the love you have shown my son. Resa
