Cook has been following Theo’s story. She said she was so moved after seeing our recent story about Theo’s life that felt compelled to use her talents to immortalize Theo in a portrait.
“Just goes to show you how good people can be,” Cook said, “and so I thought, you know, I’d really like to do something, and the one thing that I do all the time is paint and draw, and so I thought, well, if nothing else, maybe this is a nice memento.”READ MORE: U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland Meets With Regional Law Enforcement Leaders
