Cookie Culbertson was for many years an active member of Smoke Rise Baptist Church. I had the privilege of knowing her husband Wylie (who passed away nearly twelve years ago), marrying her son and having one of her daughters, Ashley, in my youth group. Cookie is an overcomer, having survived bone cancer and now learning to live without her precious Smoke Rise friends. Cookie resides at Delmar Gardens in Smyrna and is quite the celebrity. On a recent visit I had with her, we were continually interrupted by the Delmar staff coming by to say “hello” to Cookie. She certainly seems to be everyone’s favorite! She is such a delight.
