Corey you will be missed. I am sure you and Gabe are in Heaven enjoying war stories of practices and games. Although I have not seen you in years I will miss you as long as I am here. Thank you for all your hard work for your brothers on the basketball team and making us into a Championship Program. You and Gabe were always the first two to do something and now you have led us into Heaven.
May God bestow his grace and strength upon the family and friends of Corey in the upcoming days and weeks. Everyone who knew Corey knew him with smile on his face. In the pic when Gabe and him were hugging- in that grainy, old picture- that smile shines through brightly. I will see you again Corey.
Love you,
Coach O'Neal

Every time I see this picture, I giggle. You and your man purse were so funny! You gave the best hugs and you always knew how to make us all smile. I love you Corey, I know you are now at peace. We will keep you in our hearts always.

Corey. I don't even know how to begin except with I love you. You were like a brother to me and Michael. When I first showed up to visit Michael that day nearly 10 years ago now I thought to myself "oh here's another one" as I wasn't a fan of many of his friends back then. However you turned out to be a staple in our lives like I couldn't imagine. Your love for my husband as your friendship blossomed sparked love in my heart for you. I never thought it would lead to what seems like a lifetime of friendship with you and Bri and your babies now. I watched Parker grow up. We joked about about Avianna and Parker getting married. We've lived together and fought together and nearly hated together but at the end of the day we loved together. To the very day we loved you hard. We grasped you in our arms and wanted the best for you. I love you so much Jolly Green Giant. I'll see you again one day.

Corey... I'm not sure where to even go from here... I'm not good at making friends, but you were the one person on this earth I considered my best friend. I can't even find the words to express this pain in my chest, or just how much I'm going to miss you... I love you Corey, in time, we'll meet again. Rest easy until then.

Corey I have known you since birth. I have had many fun times on vacation with you and your family. You were always such a trickster to me and I fell for them all!
You will be missed, until we meet again.

Corey you actually made me a “Nana” first.
I am so proud of that title. I treasure all of our memories. I still know every word of our bedtime story of the “Big Buck Deer”. Which you wanted me to share with your class on Grandparents day. I was happy to share it and they loved it like you did.
Until we walk spirit to spirit in Heaven I love you bunches and bunches.

Corey, too many memories go through my head when I think about the last eight years since we have become friends. From nearly having a panic attack at the haunted house, right after we got out of the car, to rocking out at the George strait concert in Louisville, you always found a way to make me laugh, and smile. You would randomly FaceTime me and I would immediately start laughing because I knew as soon as I answered, I was going to be laughing anyways. You became a brother to me really quickly, and the thought of living the rest of my life without those FaceTime calls, the humor you would provide, and the friendship we had, absolutely breaks my heart. I promise you I will always be there for your kids, and your wife, and to make sure they always remember not only who their daddy is, but who you were as a person. I love and miss you so much!
