We apologize for being so late in expressing our deepest condolences to you and your family. We want you to know that we will be sending Care Packages to deployed troops this holiday season and several of these will be dedicated to your loved one. Each package will carry the name, photo, service branch, rank and hometown of Cory Christian Kosters US Army Private 1st Class.

We realize that this is a small tribute, but we do this with all respect and sincerity...

On Wednesday, March 7, 2018--just eleven years after Cory's death on March 5, 2007, Cory's best friend John Michael Downs, was buried near Cory in Houston's National Cemetery.

And though it breaks our hearts that John Michael no longer walks this earth, we rejoice that John and Cory are together once again in the realms of heaven where their bodies are made whole.

We miss you terribly, dear Cory, and long to see you again one day.

Such a beautiful memorial honoring all soldiers of all branches of the military for their service. This Memorial Day will mark its 1-year anniversary.

What a great day! At today's Memorial Day service Cory and Zach's statue recognizing all servicemen and women in all branches of the military was unveiled. It has been a long process, but worth the wait! I cannot help but think that Cory & Zach would have loved it!!

Senta and family.....remembering all of you today. God Bless.

Cory....remembering you on Memorial Day and always. Thank you for your service, hero! RIP
