  21. Becky I am so sorry for your loss. I know it’s hard to lose a child before yourself as a mother. Nobody in this world would want to bury a child first. I wish you the best and I hope you heal from this and he’s in God’s hands now.

  22. Sorry to hear about this devastating loss I know it’s very difficult losing someone you Love so much acts 24:15 helps us to appreciate that soon there will be a ressurection and we will be reunited with our loved ones again my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family

  23. Cory,

    I am still realizing how privileged I was/am to be your cousin through my mom and Curtis’ marriage. I am thankful that you understood who Our Father says you are and Who He truly is. I have no doubt that now you know that more than any of us could. Although it is painful for the rest of us to adjust to our lives here on Earth after you, we rest in the securing comfort and knowing that we haven’t seen the last of you yet. I know we will see each other once again, and this time for ever!

    I love you and miss you bro. We all do.

    Forever in His Glory, now you live eternally. Amen.

  24. Cory,
    Since you were little you’ve been such a huge part of his family. I can’t hardly remember a holiday or family event that you weren’t there. Our hearts are breaking at the thought of your not being here with us. But I know God needed you to liven things up, up there. So rest easy and watch over us, especially Chris… he really needs you. You will always be with us in spirit and your laughter and memory will keep us smiling until we meet again.

    We love you!
    Momma K & Pop K

  25. Will miss those bright blue eyes and that incredible smile!! So blessed to have been able to be a part of your life. Until I see you again….I love you.

  26. Guy, a parent should never have to outlive their child. I’m terribly sorry to hear about your son. If you need anything, don’t hesitate to ask.

  27. Rest easy, beautiful young man. Watch over your wonderful Mom.
    Heaven is a little sweeter with you there.
    Sherry Hamrick-Arnold

  28. Cory, you were the most energetic and friendly person. You were always there when I needed to talk even thousands of miles apart you were still there. You were one of my closest friends in life and I will always remember all the memories we had together I am glad to call you my family I’ll miss you and hope one day to be with you again rest up brother.

  29. RIP Cory, we couldn’t have asked for a better neighbor! You were always there to lend a hand when needed. NFL football was a shared passion, how many hours have we spent talking football. Both of us agreed our dream Superbowl would be The Falcons against the Bills. If that game ever happens, I’ll know you had something to do with it!

  30. May our Lord comfort and substain all of your Family Beckie…thinking of you much today…what a Beautiful Son Corey was…Praying for all of you today as your son has gone on up ahead for this part of Life’s journey…You can tell he was a joy and delight to all of you…family and friends with his Beautiful eyes,winning smile,I see much laughter and love and dancing….we can only Imagine how our Lord took him in his loving arms and we have so much to look forward to with that Blessed Reunion! God hold you…Charlie and Bertie Weik

  31. The world is a little less fun without you.
    You are dearly missed by so many, hope the joy, love, and blessings you had in this life carry on to the next.

  32. Our dearest Cory, A little over a year ago, Cory, you asked me to light a candle at chuch for your close friend who had just passed and I did. Never did we expect to be lighting a candle now for you, sweet Cory. We feel such an emptiness but will always treasure the memories of watching you grow up with our boys. For now… bask in God’s love knowing that one day all will be reunited.. We love you, Cory

  33. Such sad news came my way today about Cory. As a Dad, you always did your best for him…in the good and bad times. Putting aside the distance and time between us, please accept my virtual hugs and sincere heartfelt sorrow for Cory’s passing. I will reach out to you very soon so we can talk. Take care my friend!!!

  34. Revelation 21:4
    And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

  35. Cory,
    It’s been a little while now, your birthday is coming up again. Would of been 33. I think about you always. I hope your actually existing somewhere in peace and happiness and not just gone forever. The thought of never being able to speak with you again even in death makes life seem so pointless. Relationships and the time you spend with people really is the most cherished and valuable thing we have on this god forsaken place. I do know if you are able to exist and somehow see this I will honor your memory by never going a day without telling the people I love the most How I feel and to Always try to never go away mad at the people you care for the most. I wish we had been given more time. It really blows my mind how fast our lives together was spent and how it is all gone now. I wish you could see how beautiful aria is becoming and how much she loves the thought of or mention of her uncle “Farting Cory”. I love you brother I don’t want to go on and on so I will leave it there. If the family see this I am sorry for your loss also I can imagine this time is equally hard for you. It’s time they say that eases all pain but sometimes I feel the longer we go the harder it is to accept the finality of it all. The feeling of his presence becomes more and more faint, the dreams of him become less occurring and new memories are formed. I always look up and wonder if you are watching and enjoying the times we are also. I hope so.
