I remember the first time I met Corey was at tire city when I was 16 years old I’ve alway bought tires from them and Corey always changed my tires for me. We’ve been great friends for a long time. We would would always sit around talk about fishing and would have a cold one together he always had a dip of snuff in. And we would always say no matter what I owe you one and laugh about it. And when we would part ways for a few days we would always say to each other I love you brother. I love and miss ya brother I’ll see ya in that big fishing pond in the sky.
