It has been a month since the Lord has taken you home. I am missing you it still seems like you should be here with us. Christmas was rough you should have been here with us opening up the gifts. You know Kiera had most of the gifts under the Christmas tree. She was so happy and wanted to play with all of the gifts. It just did'nt seem right not having you here. I cried but the help me through that time and was able to enjoy the family gathering without you. Well you miss the macaroni and cheese it was good!!!!!! I went to a memorial service on 1/18/09 for Walter Harris who died a week after you he was a young man to. Being at that service reminded me of you and I started missing you again I know I probably will a lot of those days but I know the Lord will help me through. You lived a life of wealth I don't mean money but knowledge you touch so many people young and old you were a wise young man beyond your year. I thank God for allow us to have you apart of our family and what you contriubute to us thank you. I know my boys will never be the same because the impartion the gave them thank you. Rest on my brother I know you are with your father and your brother take care and I will see you soon.

Hey homie:( I never would have thought that when you called me three weeks ago, that would be the last time I ever heard your voice. As I look back, you were actually telling me bye. You told me you were letting me know what was going on with you(health wise) and not to worry. I made it to see you on Dec 3rd. I hope you know that I was there. I never got a chance to see that smile or those brown eyes again. I will never forget growing up on Bayard St., hanging out, watching HBO, playing Nintendo 'Techno Bowl'& 'Double Dribble', and as we got older drinking those White Mountain Coolers(we swore we were drinkers). Thanks Homie. 4ever in my heart. Rest young friend. Ms. Mary and Mr. Charles he is home. 4ever in my heart, Li'l Bub

I will always remember the days of growing up on Bayard with Cory and Felicia and the rest of the "Baytec Crew" (you know who you are)!! My heart goes out to the family. Cory is in a better place smiling down on all of us along side Ms. Mary and Mr. Charles!!! Love you all!!!

Cory, people thought we were a couple everywhere we went.. i remember both of us saying the other could be so lucky! Actualy, i am lucky.. more so blessed to have had the pleasure of befriending you. As I write, all the things we used to do is flashing across my mind.. from the late night talks about our health issues, love and life.. water ice runs to Freds in southwest.. salads and bbq pizza from fairmount (his favorite!) to supermarket, target, and walmart shopping with my mom (Mommy as you lovingly called her).. at home dinner and movies, outing after outing.. i've done more with you than folks i've known for 20+ yrs.. but the most important of them all is the day you grabbed me by he hand and introduced me to the Family Life Worship Center. Thank you for loving me that much.. i've never been so spiritually fed. I admire your pursuit for God through having to carry around oxygen and your sickness. You didn't let it hinder your dedication to the Lord. It forced me to look in the mirror at my shortcomings. I'm trying to wrap my mind around the idea of you not being here but.. I shall see you again, INDEED! I know you're in the presenct of God.. pain free, worry free.. care free! I promise to be there for your family if they need me. I love you still and always, always will. Psalms 23:6 116:15 John 14:1-4 Phil 1:21

Thank you for your beautiful friendship with my daughter Dani and for caring enough to call me "Mommie". I liked how you two took care of each other and were true friends. I always enjoyed our conversations and the laughter we shared. I always told my daughter what a nice person I thought you were. Soft spoken, good sense of humor and very gentle. It always pleased me that you called me Mommie, it would always make me smile, especially the night we went shopping at Target and then the three of us went to eat. You were always the perfect gentleman. Last we spoke was before the Thanksgiving holiday and I was so looking forward to visiting with you. It did not turn out the way I wanted it to, but I know you are with The Lord now and feeling so thankful about being in His presence. We will miss you dearly and you will always remain in our hearts. So for now, until we meet again and "indeed" we will.

I love you....Mommie

Jesus said. " I am the resurrection and the life; He who believes in me will live even when he dies. With that i know you may not he here with use but you are smiling down on us from a better place than we can ever be. I can just see the glow and smile on your face when Uncle Charles, My Dad, Grandma, and many of our loved ones where waiting for you at the pearly gates. Cory I love you and will miss you making me smile, and helping understand its good to be around family. P.S tell my Dad I love him, and I miss him.

To My Cousin Cory,

Wow, writing this message seem to surreal, it was some months ago you were comforting our family with our loss of your Uncle and our Father. I am at a loss for words right now.

As I sat with Corey in the Hospital the day before they tubed him down, I had to encourage him to not be so concerned about doing so much talking. He had on his breathing mask, but oh boy! was he ready to talk and talk some more, giving God all of the praise. And yes, of course, he was very happy to see my smiling face.

He was such an encouragement to Calwin and I. Matter of fact, Calwin said that as he left the hospital from that visitation he was so lifted up and encouraged by the last words (we did not know at that time)that Corey spoke.

Right now I'm speechless, yet I'm grateful and at great peace, knowing that I shall, without a doubt, see my cousin again, and we shall live together in eternity with our Lord Jesus Christ. PRAISE THE LORD!!!

Unc, Dad,
Never thought that this day was going to come so soon. You taught me so many things in life that i can hope to teach my sons. I' m glad that we got a chance to spend time together. I will never forget what you taught me. I was blessed to have someone like you in my life, i hope that everyone can have a chance to expiernce time with some one like you you. I will make you proud. When i'm walking down the street i will check my back to make sure no one is after me. I will walk with my head up. I will watch out for Kottie and tell him not to not to forget what you taught him about baskettball. I will remember what you taught me about condoms, and the ladies. I cant forget you, you was too involed in my life!

I'll see you again in heaven, but until then I'll keep all your advice and do the best that I can here on Earth. Say hi to my Mom and my Dad. tell them I love them. I know your in Heaven. May God bless you and your beautiful family. Don't be a stranger to come see me in my travels or my dreams. Until we meet again. I love you Cory. I'll always miss you. See you in Heaven.
