Captain Cormier had legions of friends, yet, to each he was a personal friend and confidant. Understandably, he was duly appointed an Honorary Admiral. I feel it was a great honor to have been one of his close friends. To me, he was a model and a mentor of so many virtuous attributes. No doubt in our minds that his crown will have many precious jewels.

Dear Mrs. Cormier and Family,

Today I read of the Captain's passing and my heart is heavy. I pray that the sorrow of that day is very short lived, and the joy of all his days with you lives so much longer.

He knew just how important he was in the lives of so many of us. You see, to so many of us as teens he was "Mr. Cormier," a school administrator. I was one of them. I too was a drop out----Hoover class of "64. I was in the Army when I completed my GED during the Viet Nam War. Then, I went on to graduated from San Diego State College, and thereafter to earn a graduate degree in Human Behavior at USIU.

When I last spoke with him I told him, "You were right about so much of life, and I finally put to good use those things you told me." He reminded me of the things we had in common, and it was so good. He is still special to me.

He was always so active and engaging with us in school and away from it. He has made a good difference in the lives of so many.

Captain, may your sails always be full, and the wind be at your back.

Rest In Peace.

In Him,

My most sincere condolences to Jo and family. When the Captain and I meet again, he and I will surely discuss the"baby hen" I got from your daughter which turned out to be a "rooster"! Jess Drummer, Captain, USNR (Ret.), Embreeville, TN.

Dr. Cormier believed in me and helped me to believe in myself - as a continuation high school student in 1981. Such educators are a rare treasure in the arena of "troubled youth" and the support and encouragement of such an admirable man meant the world to me then - and still resounds today.
May you embrace God's comfort and peace as you celebrate this wonderful life.
