I had the privilege of being one of Cordelias friends and I loved every minute of it. We had floral design together and at one point when she was in band we had a small little band family. We were always playing UNO or Crazy 8s in floral design. We were always partners for projects in this class as well. We created a wedding together, which she did most of the amazing and beautiful work on, and we made a yellow and blue elephant, one her favorite and the other mine, for our plant. She had made that class so much fun. She always lit up the room and the days she wasn’t there you could tell. Another one of my favorite memories was when we went to prom and she was so mad because they refused to let her order off the kids menu. She was always so sweet, funny, caring, and amazing. I love you Cordelia and I will miss your laugh and your smiling face.

Cordelia is my 3rd cousin I was not living in Shawnee at first then we moved there. We went to church together and I rode with them. One Sunday Terry went over the railroad tracks and we all bumped on heads. Me and the kids laughed and said do it again. Carrie was against that. Cordelia always made me laugh. She was beautiful and had a special soul. I love you Cordelia

Cordelia and I worked together at Sonic. We hit it off immediately, I knew we would become close friends right then. I was correct, everyday working with her was better than the next. She brought life to the room with her constant laughter and beautiful smile. We may not have known each other more than a few months, but I can truly say she became one of my best friends. I will forever treasure the memories we have made. I love you Cordelia.

Cordelia and I met working together at The Little Gym of Waco. From the moment we met, I knew she was going to be one of my best friends. We worked together and became closer everyday, going to Chick-fil-A (our fav) and even hanging out before we had to work. Over the short period of time we had know each other, we still made therapy sessions a must! Whether it was on FaceTime whenever we could, or just hanging out, bringing each other drinks when we needed them. Though we went to different schools, we still stayed in touch quite a bit and got so excited when we’d see each other in public. The past 8 months I’ve known this girl have felt like a life time and it’s safe to say she was one of my very best friends. I love you Cor! Thanks for all the great memories you gave me. I’ll never forget you sweet girl♥️

Cordelia was a very good friend and at one time she was my teammate in volleyball, my partner in cheer, and a schoolmate. I’ve seen her in her good days and her bad days but most of them were good and I was thankful that she would share those good days with me. She was my partner in cheer, we did every stunt together and nothing was harder than having to hold in our laughs when everyone was so serious during practices. My best memory of her was our horrible dancing at cheer practice and our really ugly laughs. I’ll definitely miss her the most in cheer because we’d always compete to who could be louder but no doubt she was definitely louder than me. I’m sad to believe that your gone Cordelia but the memories will forever stay with me.

I had just met Cordelia this last year through my best friend Kevin P., and she was just a bright light shining every where. I took her fishing for her first time...i can just remember the excitement and happiness on her face when she got her first fish. She had a special place in my friend group and i grew close to her. There’s no amount of time i’d trade with the time i spent with her. Cor was an angel even here with her time on earth. God has a plan and it’s our purpose to fulfill that plan of his. I know deep down that he wouldn’t put all her loved ones through this if he knew we couldn’t get past this hard time eventually. No matter what, she will always be kept dear and near my heart. I was so blessed to have such a great friend put into my life.
