I'm so loss for words this was a shocker. Corie had a talkative nature and joker like his mom. He love his kids good stepfather to 3 kids. He also enjoyed giving advice to the young kids. He enjoyed teaching kids basketball. He really enjoyed talking about the Lord. He always left you with encouragement. His favor quote to me was mom pray for them. When my son was taking away in such a early life a peace of my heart was taking. I has fond memories and think of all the silly things he said and did. The serious talks we had about the bible and God word which was always good. You will always be in my heart and never be for gotten.
Love Always Mama.

Such a well mannered young man. Didn't know him personally, but every time he saw me he would say hello and ask me how I was. If he saw me leaving for work he would always say hello and tell me to have a good day. Heartfelt prayers to all family and friends. ❤️
