God saw you getting tired & a cure was not to be. So He put his arms around you & whispered "come to me". With tearful eyes I watched you, & saw you pass away. Although I loved you dearly I couldn't make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest; God broke my heart to prove to me, He only ...takes the best.

Corey I will never forget the time you were riding your bike with skates on around moulton, and the times you would stay at the house, you michael, quay, peewee would stay up all night playing video games. I will miss the hugs you gave when I would pick Boo, quay up from the church. You will be missed. RIP Corey.

My heart has been so heavy this weekend, as there are no words that I can express the emptiness that I feel. U are now & will forever be missed but never forgotten. I'm praying for the entire family for comfort & support. As Tiffany holds it together for her other babies....let's hold it together for her....help her find her strength & hold her close.
