We are so sorry for your loss, we knew Corey from WM in Herrin and thought alot of him. He was friendly and funny with an all around good person and outgoing and helpful as well as a very polite young man. He will be sorely missed and with us always.

Nancy and GaryI am shocked and heartbroken for the two of you, as well as your entire family. Many thoughts, prayers and hugs to all of you at this extremely difficult time.

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, but I'm hoping the memories of the love you shared will bring you comfort .

Corey was such a kind hearted young man. He was thoughtful, respectful and such a joy to know. My son Levi played golf with him at Crab Orchard for several years and I got to know him there. Levi is sad that he is gone. My heart aches for the entire family as does Levi's. God bless you all and I know that there is a very special angel in the hands of our Lord.
