    My condolences again to you and your family. I will not be able to attend the service, but I wanted to send my love, hugs, and prayers to you Michelle and the rest of the family. As I stated, it has been years, but there are times that it feels like yesterday when we were in high school; etc. I can remember when I met you-your family moved from California to College Station, Texas. Anyway, I remember when I first went to your house and your family was very loving and welcoming. I can remember the days of us just hanging out at your house-it was one of the hot spots!! Of course there was Cory, always smiling, joking, fun-loving, some of his shenanigans but he had a heart of gold!!
    Plus, who can’t forget Cory! I am really sorry to hear about this and I will miss him. My heart goes out to you and the rest of the family; it is always hard when we lose our loved ones. However, this will take time and we will remember the memories along with other factors. May God continue to bless and protect all of you!
