Although it's been years since seeing Corey I will never forget all of the adventures I've had with him throughout the years growing up. From spending time running wild together in and out of school in Crivitz , living in the mountains of Colorado, to hitch hiking across the country with him. You are greatly missed my friend! I'll see you someday in Valhalla Brother!

My deepest condolences! Cory is my cousin, exactly 4 years younger than I am. I remember on my 4th birthday when my mom told me that my baby cousin was born, I was delighted. I wish I had known Cory better, and I'm sorry that I haven't kept in touch with our extended family.

I'm sorry for your lose. Cory was a one-of-a-kind individual. Even though we didn't see each other often or talk as often as we should, I considered him to be one of my oldest and best friends.

We love you and miss you
