To my baby brother Cory we will miss you so much. You were a special person and I still find it hard to believe you are not here. You will forever be in our hearts. I will see you again, this I know. You are free now and I am happy that you are no longer in that horrible pain any more. I LOVE YOU- WE ALL LOVE YOU!

Upon hearing of Corey's homegoing, my heart broke. I taught him at Anne Chesnutt in 7th grade. He was a sweet and kind person, with never a bad word to say about anyone. I told teachers he was the kind of student we wish we had more of. My prayers go out to the family. Know that God has a special young man in his chorus of angels in heaven.

Yesterday, a co-worker informed me about Cory's passing... As his Science Teacher at Anne Chesnutt Middle School, he was a very bright young man and it was pleasure having Corey as a student. I've spoken with the principal and suggested we dedicated the 2013-14 Yearbook in Corey's Memory. Please know that the Chesnutt Family send their deepest condolences to family and friends.

I remember Corey well, as his third Grade teacher at Lake Rim Elementary. For brain breaks we used to play a game called silent speed ball. Corey could never catch the ball. We would laugh about it and so would he. It took a (visually challenged) friend of mine to explain that the reason Corey had so much trouble catching the ball was because of the spider legs that were attached to it. Corey could not tell which way the ball was coming towards him. Therefore, we adopted a bean bag stuffed animal we named sparky. The first time Corey caught Sparky we all cheered and so did he. Corey taught me that no matter what a child's defieciency may be there is always a way to cater to his or her needs by getting to the root of the problem. I don't know what Corey passed away from or why he was taken away from this world so soon, but I do know that his living was not in vain. My heart goes out to his entire family. More than anything I wish you peace.
