My mom meant more to me than any words can explain. She was a loving, caring person who would do anything for you. She often put others before herself. She loved time with family especially for the holidays. I will miss her smile and her hugs. I will miss talking to her on the phone finding out what's new with her and the family. I will miss getting to bring her to Florida for a visit so I could spend more time with her. I am so thankful that I got to take her on the cruise she dreamed of getting to go on. Also thankful that I made it to Illinois to see her and love on her one more time before she passed away. Time may heal but it will not erase the hole in my heart. I love you mom.

Cora but I knew her as Grandma. I met her when my son Dan and I started helping Jessie with Dads Can Too. Her and I would set together at the Craft functions at the Sliders games the JR Blues Games and any time we got together and talked about our kids and great grandchildren and grand children. We had so much in common. She was so proud of what Jessie was doing hoping some day things would be much different for him. You can rest in peace that will be a better place for the children and Dads.
I will miss you my friend. Rest in peace. Much love and hugs.
Much love to the family and lots of hugs.

To all of you I send my condolences and my prayers. Cora will forever be in my heart and with me as she was one of my dearest friends and we shared so much. I got her sense of humor and we shared a lot of laughs. I’m sure when she got to heaven she had a good laugh because she didn’t have to go to any more doctors or have any more tests. So just remember her smiling as she is healed now!
