    So sorry Jami..It’s very hard to go through this stage in life. Life goes full circle and we are blessed to have our parents as long as possible. Hugs and you and your family are in my prayers.

    We are so sorry to hear about Corky. Although I did not know Corky personally, I know his family. His Mother Sue was a wonderful woman. I miss her every day. His sister Paula is so sweet & thoughtful. His daughter Jami is so sweet & thoughtful. Sweet & thoughtful runs in this family. So I know that Corky must have also been sweet & thoughtful also. My thoughts are that now Corky is in his Mothers arms in Heaven. I know you will miss him but I know Sue is so glad to see him. My prayers are with you all. Love from the Birdsongs
