Oh my, what a shock. FAMILY, your loss is felt by many. Chris and I went to school together so I've known Corkey forever. She was always happy to see me giving me a big hug. I know you all will miss her greatly but, she lived to the end! God is good. May He comfort you all in your lonesome times. Love you all.

I am so sorry for the death of your loved one and know that this must be a very difficult time for you to deal with. Death is something we will never get used to dealing with because it was never apart of God’s original purpose. Fortunately, God will soon get rid of death once and for all. At Revelation 22:3,4 it says, “With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” “ What a wonderful time this will be. But what about our loved ones we have already lost? At Acts 24:15 God has promised us that we will have the opportunity to see them again. How comforting and reassuring God’s promises are!
