When Corbin still lived in Oregon City, He spent a lot of time with me (Andrea), Jackson, Rob and Ashley. In our neighborhood, we were overrun by aggressive squirrels that would tease our dogs. Corbin tried climbing the tree to catch the squirrel, though I’m not sure what he was thinking, because it jumped on him, causing him to fall out of the tree. He didn’t get hurt, he only fell about 15 feet, but it was so funny, we all got a good laugh at his expense that day, but he laughed with us too. I miss him and forever will. I love you Nibroc, you were the best.

Folks, we have shed a river of tears and will miss Corbin dearly. Our memories of him will always be of games nights at the Allermans. In spoons we remember a master class of deception, sneaking spoons while the rest of us had our heads down. And then there was the murder mystery with a blonde wig, coconut shells and wings. Carried off with such aplomb. Beautiful memories, beautiful warm smile - beautiful boy
Love always
The Fergusons

I'm forever going to remember and cherish the short time I had with you. You made work enjoyable and always laughed at my jokes. And my jokes were terrible. You had a sense of humor that matched mine and I loved seeing that smile shine!
Say hi to my little sister for me.

Slowly Turns the Wheel of Life
By Corbin Holmes (April 17, 2015)

In the beginning, a long time ago
A life was to come, just a minute to go
With one final push, the pain would be done
Baby is free, and Mommy has won
But in the first act of freedom, he wizzed on the doctor
He smiled and said “his water works!” and after was laughter

Over the years the younger grow older
Not long after the first came a second boy brother
At first we were loving and liked one another
That was nice

After awhile the boys took a hit
A father of two decided to split
As the wheel of life continued to turn
This mother of two was feeling the burn

As the boys grew older
Without the aid of their father
The Mother was still always there

She cleaned them and bathed them
She dressed them and fed them
She taught them and held them so dear
She struggled to control them
So much misbehavior
But she hadn’t a thought of despair

She never gave up not even a little
The boys might argue and fight
But she’d win the battle
If there was a prize for best mother, she’d get the medal

Some people are good
Some people are bad
Some people are wicked
Some are just sad

But I know she’s not wicked
I know she’s not bad
She blessed us all with her good
But I know sometimes she’d be sad
But before it was too long, she found a nice man
He had two boys also, I think it was a fad

My mommy their daddy, went out on a date
The boys finally met, and boy was it great
We all got along and things seemed to get better
To Portland we moved, where the weather is wetter

The two boy most elder, caused oh so much havoc
Whatever they wanted, they thought they could have it
You gave us rules and taught us some structure
But that didn’t help, I was still a destructor

I fought and I fought always trying to win
I just missed my dad and wanted to see him again
I was blind for so long and that I can’t change
I had so many mixed feelings, it was quite a large range

But now times are different, as we sit here in Texas
My real dad is gone, crossed out with big X’s
But look as us now, this family of six
I know we aren’t perfect, but tell me who is?

All I can say is the brothers who fought
Have now grown together and I love them a lot
This tale may sound like the story of a son but indeed it is not
This tale entails the wonderful love that one mother has definitely got

For you see from the beginning to present
I see but a constant
When the times become tough and you’re not sure what’s enough
Your love had always been persistent

With every choice that you had, you kept us in mind
With the hell we put you through, your heart must be divine
But now we have reach this day and I know it is true
Each one of us will always love you

Each day is a new and the wheel keeps turning
Each day a new lesson, and we keep on learning
Where the wheel will take us we never will know
Just take each day slowly, so the wheel may go
For if you turn it too fast you will lose your control
If you feel your wheel has lost balance and is spinning too much
We are all here together and we love you so much!
