Mr. Corey..I never met you but I do know your daughter and son in law, Todd and Bridget and your grandchildren Grace and Sean. The work ethic, the love for children and the zest for life you left your daughter Bridget is firmly in place. She along with all of your family will sorely miss you. You seemed to have had such a fulfilling life that will go on in perpetuity with your family. Rest in peace, prayers will go to your family from me. Victor McGuire

We will all miss Paul's infectious laugh. He was a true Gator and a very special man. He went through a lot in his life but the love of his family and wife Marcy brought him through it all. We will all miss you Paul. Rest in Peace!!
