My name is Bonnie Corey, John & my Dad (Wilbur 'Bill' Corey) were first cousin's. My dad & I came from California to visit my dad's sister, Thelma, quite a few years ago.We called John to come over & visit with us & I wanted to meet the famous 'John Corey'.....my cousin! What a meeting it was - I didn't think I could get them apart because they were laughing & talking about the "good old days". It was the first time I met John & I couldn't believe how much they looked alike, the Corey trait is very strong.....I have it too. My sister & I have been talking over the years with John about Corey memorabilia & he has showed us so much about our great grand-parents & other family members. Along the way it has also given us a chance to get to know John. My father passed away July of 2005, even though they were first cousins, I feel that over time we were getting to know John. He wanted us to know our history... it was his as well, & he wanted us to know how we all came together. His passing brings a great deal of sorrow. Linda, I am sincerely sorry for this hard time you are going through,. When your heart is empty, filling it with happy memories can help you find your smile. I can still see John & my dad, Bill, in Thelma's kitchen with their arm's around each other cracking jokes, laughing so hard they were bent over & teasing each other about their tummies...It was a sight I will never forget! I took a photo of them & when I can locate it I will send it to you. Now they are laughing & joking with each other in Heaven, I'm sure of it! You are in my thoughts & prayers now & always,
Bonnie Corey (married last name Rangel)
