He was my buddy, too. Just rekindled our friendship a few months ago. The last time we spoke, he said..I'm doing really good. I said...I know, I can see it in your face. I was so pleased to see that he had trudged a grueling road and overcome. He was a really good guy.

I am grateful to have known you. When I last saw you a month or so ago, I would never have realized it would be the last. We had a good talk. Prayers to all family and friends. Rest easy Cory.
