    While I didn’t know Cory personally, I do know the feelings of helplessness when a loved one dies, Devoted son, father and brother, extended family members and friends, who will truly miss him. As you all continue to mourn, please take comfort in the fact that God will do away with sickness, suffering, pain and even death forever. (Revelation 21:3,4)
