I will truly miss you Mom. My biggest regret was not spending enough time with you. I will never forget the lessons that you've taught me. I am truly going to miss listening to you answer your phone when you knew I was calling. You will always be in my heart, now it's time to let go and let God. I love you Mama

I worked with Cordy at Raytheon. She was a very special lady who was kind of like a "mother" to all of us. She took pride in helping everyone, took interest in our lives and well being, and shared funny and interesting stories with us about her life and family. She was also spunky and strong-willed, which I very much admired. She will always be remembered and missed. Sincere condolences to all of her family.

Because of you, I had a truly amazing childhood. I will always remember playing dress up with your old clothes, creating elaborate stories with my barbies, and transforming your living room into a little camp made of umbrellas and sheets. I'm so thankful that I had a role model such as you. You shaped me into the person I am today and taught me that I am capable of anything I put my mind too. I will love you forever and miss you every day. Heaven has gained an angel.
