We met Corey in Frederica; We knew he was special at that moment. He loved my mom's pasteles, arroz con gandules. He spoke our language, and ate our Puerto Rican food. Corey remain a good friend to our family and a close friend to my sister. We will miss you Corey but we know we will see you again. God welcomed you home and gave you wings.
To the family, We send our condolences.
We love you Corey!
