A message from Bill Cook’s family

Bill Cook - SFO Leader 1983 - 2019

Bill’s family have asked us to publish the following ‘thank you’ message from them on this website and we are delighted to do so:

The Cook family would like to thank most sincerely all who sent messages and letters from near and far following the sad loss of Bill. A special thank you to all who paid their last respects at the church and graveside and for the support from the members of the Scottish Fiddle Orchestra whose music at the reception was an uplifting and fitting tribute to Bill.

We would also like to express our gratitude for donations given on the day which raised the fantastic amount of £1,158 and will be split between the Scottish Ambulance Service and Chest, Heart and Stroke Scotland.

There is an article honouring Bill’s life and huge contribution to the SFO – and Scottish fiddle music, in general – here.
