Hacienda,

My thoughts and prayers are with you and the kids. I know you know that I know what you are going through. I am not going to say it will get easier because that feeling will always be with you. What I will tell you though, is with time, it gets easier to manage those feelings. Lots of praying and talking with God has helped me. Do not let anyone tell you when or how to grieve. Only you know what is good for you. I love you and the kids, you all are in my thoughts and prayers. I am only a phone call away! I love you! Nita

Heartbroken ...

I’m truly going to miss you friend. So glad our paths crossed at Regions. You were one of the most genuine people I’ve ever met ... Never a dull moment when you were around.

To Hacienda, CJ, Cyd, Carter, and the rest of Cory’s family and friends ... my heart goes out to you. I pray that God comforts you all during this time like only he can. 

C Ray until we meet again ... rest well my friend!

I Was truly heartbroken to hear of the passing of Corey. He had such a positive impact on his friends during his high school days. He also had a positive impact on me, as his assistant principal. He and my daughter, Alva, remained life long friends, and we are both devastated. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family. May God bless and keep them during this very sad time.
With heartfelt sympathy,

Cory was a charming and smooth face young man when I last saw him. Shocked to say the least; a son a mother could be proud of; polite and gentlemanly. 

To his family and friends; he is loved by many and missed by many.

It has been awhile since the family has come together and shared moments at the dinner table. This is never the news you expect to hear. Praying for your love ones. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Holy Spirit, you are the almighty Comforter. Wrap this family in your tenderness and comfort them in the all knowing of God's love.

My heart was completely shocked and broken when your mom shared the news of your transition. Know that you did everything right and for whatever reason, God needed you more. Say hi to my dad, your Aunt, and Grandma for me.

For now it is time for you to take your rest. And while you are resting, I will make sure I look after your mom.

Helen, I am here for you and the family. ALWAYS!
