To Aunt Corinne: I have happy and loving memories of you. We all felt your love for life and love for us. I am happy that you are now out of a broken body and your soul is free from the burdens of this world. Miss you, you will always be in my heart. Love you!

Today God called home one of the angels that He had walking the Earth. My mother was the most remarkable woman I know and I am so blessed that she decided to adopt me as her daughter so many years ago. I could not have asked for a better mother. Momma, I will miss you every single day.

Corinne has been my favorite Auntie all my life. Since a little girl she has assured me that I am "the most beautiful of them all". She made me and everyone she encountered feel "special". As a major pillar in the Walter family, she loved entertaining and gathering all of us together at her home to share old family stories and make new ones. I am often told that I am just like my Auntie and my mother Betty, Corinne's only sister. I couldn't be more blessed, honored and privleged, to even come close, to being like these remarkable women. Auntie, you are always with me, and can be heard, even though you can no longer be seen. Forever my love!

Our loss today is deeper than we express. We are honored to shared her life. Corinne loved her family, animals and all things beautiful. Her sense of humor and love of jewelry was a source of many family stories. I will miss her beyond measure. Rest in Peace without pain Aunt Corinne. I love you.
