We met Evangelist Cora Crump and her late husband in Elmira NY at the Sullivan Street Mission where Sister Blanche Berghuis was the minister. When she played the piano and sang there was an anointing that brought the Glory of the Lord there. I have enjoyed being on Facebook with her and talking with her on the phone. I am sorry that we hadn't gotten up there to visit. She loved the Lord and her family. God be with each family member and remember we are friends that will pray.

My dear friend Corky you will be missed greatly on this Earth. You've touched the hearts of many through your friendship your ministry and your Accordion and Piano playing. I enjoyed the times that we sang together. Many things will be different without you around.It won't be the same on the church van or in church without you sitting behind me agreeing with Pastor Dill's preaching. Or hearing you shout out an Amen or a Hallelujah in agreement with the Pastor. And I'll miss you playing the Piano at the monthly church dinners. You always livened up things with your playing and singing. I'll miss you being my cabin mate at sister Penny's women's retreats in the mountains every summer, and on our journey to and from there when we get to ride together. It just won't be the same at mom's house anymore on the Holidays without you there. I'm so very glad that I got the opportunity to get to know you and to become your friend. I remember when you came into my workplace about 20 years ago to get me to develope your pictures. You told me that you knew me and my mother and grandmother. Then you started showing me your photos and telling me all about your family like we'd always known each other. When I got home that night I called my mom to tell her about this strange lady that I had met who claimed that she knew me. Mom told me that she knew exactly who you were and then she reminded me that I did know you. After that day every where that I went in town there you were. Then you and Mom became next door neighbors and we became family. I can just picture you now in Heaven now. I wonder who you ran to first when you ran through Heaven's gates. Was it your husband or Jesus? I guess I'll just have to wait to get there to find out for myself. I love you my friend and I'll miss you. RIP till we meet again.

I will miss you so very much.I loved hearing you play your accordion as much as you loved playing it.I only wish that we would have gotten the opportunity to continue my accordion lessons.I still can only play one side of it.I'll miss seeing you in church and at Mama's.I'll also miss your sweet comments that you give me on Facebook.I've enjoyed spending time with you on the Holidays at Mom's and at Sister Penny's Women's retreat in the mountains every year.It won't be the same at church without hearing you agreeing with Pastor Dill or shouting out Amen.Or riding with you on the church van.But we will be reunited again one day in Heaven.I'm just trying to picture who you ran to first when you entered Heaven's gates.Was it your husband or Jesus?I guess I'll find out when I get there.I love you Corky and I'll miss you. I'm so happy that I got the opportunity to know you and to call you my friend.RIP.
