One way we are honoring Corrina is by leaving heART stones.  You can find more information about heART stones at:

Missing you Corrina Payge; more than ever. I miss your humor, your voice, your joy and your strength. I am so thankful that God chose me to be your mom. I'm a better person because you loved me.

My darling Corrina, I look for ways to keep your spirit alive in each day in different ways. May your love for art live on in our heARTstones created in the loving memory of your creative and thrill seeking spirit. May others find joy and togetherness in finding them, giving them, keeping them and of course creating them!

Even though I will always be your mother, I miss how I felt with you in my life everyday. I miss the sound your voice, your laugh and most of all, I miss your love for me. Mom

Although I'm not in as much shock, I'm still in disbelief that you transitioned. Who am I to question God's will? My love for you Corrina ran so deep, I tried to protect you from the world. As my first born and only child for the first eleven years of your life, you were the center of my world. Like I wrote to you in your photo book, "How wonderful life is, while you're in the world." I went through a journey with you being your mother. And I would have given you anything I had to give and you went through the same journey with me, and you wanted me to have the world as well. Our love is unwavering and undeniable. You are the light of my life and I miss you everyday until my heart bursts. I long to see you again and it will be a sweet reunion. Until then, my heart will ache.

"I am trying to remember you and let you go at the same time." -the mourn Happy Birthday Corrina Beana! What I would give to see you and hear your voice again. I always looked forward to just getting a text from you. You were a bright light for me when I didn't have people to talk to in New Hampshire. You knew how to make me laugh uncontrollably. I miss so many things about you. I wish I could still get your advice but I still look up to you. You knew how to be truly yourself, exude confidence, and have a good time. You got me excited to do things and try things like possibly going to Cancun someday. We sat in the office in our home in Colorado looking at pictures of different resorts, fantasizing about which one we would stay at. I smile remembering you saying, "Cancun hasn't seen anything yet. We are going to live it up there Meghan." We were waiting for my 18th birthday to go (when it would be legal for me to drink there). I know that you are in paradise now, a place much nicer than Cancun :) So as I began this post with, "I am trying to remember you and let you go at the same time." Remembering how full of life you could be inspires me to be the same and dream and have fun and laugh and add color to life just as you did. I love and miss you chica. <3 Meghan

.........At this time of year Corrina so often would call and say "Gramma, can I please have my Christmas gift early so I can go shopping"? And then she would spend it all on the people she loved! In Colorado, when Corrina lived with us, I took her Christmas shopping and watched her lovingly select presents while her eyes lit up just thinking about her little sisters and Mom opening her gifts. Corrina could make a dollar stretch when she shopped and her excitement was contagious.... Now, we realize that she was the gift in her short time with us... Those who are with us for a short time are special angels who will never get old and are always remembered for the gifts of the heart they gave, and Corrina gave so much........

.......On this third anniversary of the passing of our Beautiful Girl, there are simply no words that can express the depths of sorrow we feel while missing our daughter, granddaughter, sister, niece, friend and so much more: Corrina Payge Layne ...... There are also no words to express the magnitude of our gratitude for the blessed time we did have with her..... Lovingly remembered, Corrina's Family
Posted by Gini Downey on 15th February 2016
In Our Hearts ........ Corrina We thought of you with love today But that is nothing new We thought about you yesterday And days before that too. We think of you in silence We often speak your name Your memory is our keepsake With which we'll never part God has you in his keeping We have you in our Hearts ..... Your Loving Family

My sadness over losing Corrina is overwhelming to the point where I want to deny that she is physically gone. Witnessing her mothers broken heart and the tragic hole left in the lives of Corrina's precious little sisters, Elise and Angelina, whom she adored, is a type of suffering I would not wish on anyone. Corrina meant more to me than I even knew, and I will never get over missing her! I can only hope to gain the acceptance that I don't control everything, that it was her time though I wish it had been mine instead. The day Corrina departed part of us went with her, and part of her stayed with us and became part of who we are: changed forever, for the better, by knowing and loving her. No one can replace her!!! The powerful essence of Corrina's spirit cannot die....... I now have a "flower garden" of memories of my Beloved, Special and Forever Granddaughter. Love and Light to You Sweetheart, then, now, and always, Gramma

Happy Birthday, Corrina. May the higher power bless you with eternal joy and peace!

Yes.... I know my life has meaning, because of the loved ones I've been fortunate to have in my life. People like Corrina Payge Layne: my beautiful eldest Grandaughter. I only wish that Corrina was here looking at Forever Missed tribute of me instead of the other way around. And yes.....I've changed! Missing Corrina reminds me everyday to treasure the present moment with others and everything we do. Corrina was a people person....who enjoyed interacting with others in so many ways: artistically doing nails and makeup and tattoos for family and friends, arts and craft projects with her Mom and little sisters and always the laughter. Corrina left such a big part of herself with us when she left, it's amazing how much she gave in her twenty years !!! I know my life has meaning. Corrina helped to show me that .... A Grateful Gramma Gini

...... I remember making butternut squash ghosts with Corrina and and Meg on Oliver Ave. We painted them white and gave them faces with black marker. These ghost characters in different shapes and sizes sat on our window sills at Halloween time. We made ghosts out of string and elmers glue on wax paper. Corrina loved Halloween and was always full of creative fun ideas for costumes and decorations. We will always miss the special touch Corrina added to the holidays and will always treasure the memories. Gramma

I will always love you Corrina. Oh how I miss you. It's amazing how time passes us by and all this time I've been longing to see your smiling face. I wish I could go back in time, I didn't even get to say goodbye. :'( The only thing that comforts me is the thought of you being in a better place. You brought magic into our lives, a magic that we can never replace. I never really knew how many people's lives were touched by you but it comes as no surprise. My eyes are now open to how important every moment is with those that we love because we will never get them back. But you will always be with me. Forever I will love and miss you. Until the very end, you will be my angel. And I thank god my sister Laurie gave birth to you. With all my heart, Meghan

To my only niece... My best friend since we were babies... The pain I feel is unbearable... Iv expierenced way too much loss... A feeling I cannot bare... In your last few weeks I had spend weekends with you! I'd drive all the way to your apartment to get you and bring you to my home for the weekend. We laughed, so much! You brought me & my friends joy ! I still have the cell phone cases you made me... And the videos of us all acting a fool . Lol . I miss you. & man were You were so over protective of me when you met the person in my life and all my new friends . I remember Eric , Devantae and you goofing around ! They still talk about you. I have that video of us singing and you talking about geo hunting lol or whatever. My gosh 20 was too young... While I'll be turning 24 on Sunday . Today I cried to my soon to be mother in law and told plenty of Christmas, birthday , fishing , Halloween , dancing memories of us growing together. You were the strongest, & brightest person i know ! All the pain we endured together, you were so supportive ! Some days I want to pick up the phone and tell you I'm coming to get you. We swam together, we laughed together, every great memory ! Fire works, jumping on the beds and getting in so much trouble lol . I have some pictures of us on my mirror to remind me of the greatest times of my childhood. we were so young . You were so beautiful , im just so thankful for being able to call you my niece ! My angel your dearly missed . And while I want to share my journey with you , as I become a wife I want you to know I'm forever empty without my dear friend and niece . I love you , Sissy.

In desperate hope I search for her in all the corners of my house. I find her not. My house is small... and what once has gone from it can never be regained. But infinite is thy mansion, my lord, and seeking her I have come to your door. -------Rabindranath Tagore the world of the spirit is a world without walls....., time, space, or physical reality. I can close my eyes and instantly be with Corrina and my other departed loved ones. That's a gift !!

Thoughts of you flow in and out of my mind like waves across the ocean and I will ride each wave; memories of you... and time stands still and my heart aches. Until we are together once again~ Love Mom "Let us, then, labor for an inward stillness-- an inward stillness and an upward healing; that perfect silence where the lips and heart are still, and we no longer entertain our own imperfect thoughts and vain options, but God alone speaks to us, and we wait in singleness of heart, that we may know His will, and in the silence of our spirits, that we may do His will and do that only." Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Corrina Payge Layne, my eldest Grand-daughter is remembered every day!!! On this day we celebrate, in memory, what would have been her 22nd. birthday. One day, we were all in the car and I started singing " We Are Family". Corrina looked at me like I was crazy and said: "let me out of this car, this is too embarrassing Gramma" and she actually jumped out of the car while cracking up laughing with Meg. Fortunately, we were going slow and nobody got hurt. There was always a lot of laughter when Corrina was around, and, of course, we loved and miss her laugh...... She had a belly laugh that was really joyous and contagious. Wish you were here Corrina, with all of our Love and treasured memories, Gramma, Mike and Meg

My sadness is always right under the surface; of course it bursts through in tears. It is the deep, intense grief of loosing the very person that has been there for me and me for you for the last 20 years of my life. It is hard to go on without you. I do know you are with me and it's so hard to be open to your spirit when clouded with the pain and sadness of my grief of missing you. Wishing you were here. Love Forever and Always, Mom

Starry, Starry Night Angel’s voices fill the air Sounds of laughter everywhere I cry in silence as the world goes by... Starry, starry night Envisioning what could have been Now I’m left with emptiness My hearts breaks when I think of what I’ve lost But I know your there Even though you’re not here with me I suffer oh, so endlessly And wonder why your life had to end Starry, starry night The heavens opened up their gates They took you, no they could not wait And when you left so did a part of me How do I go on? Wishing you are here with me It will seem like an eternity Until we are together once again My dear Corrina Payge My daughter and my closest friend I never thought your life would end I loved you every day of your life I love you My sweet Corrina Payge And I always will…

From the moment you entered onto this earth, you brought me joy. I used to tell you, "how wonderful life is, while you're in the world" and that's just how I felt. Oh baby, do I miss you with all my heart. I am the one that was truly blessed because I had the pleasure of being your mother for twenty wonderful years~ thank you Lord. {;'I';} (Here is a special butterfly symbolic of your spirit being free.) ~With Love, Corrina's Mom
