Dear Kate,
You don't know me but I work at Mallinckrodt. I can honestly say that everyone here thought the world of Kory. He always had a smile on his face and had a wonderful sense of humor. I have missed his presence ever since he left here, but he has always been in my thoughts and prayers. My thoughts and prayers are also with you and your family during this very sad time. God bless you. Most sincerely ...
