For those of you who knew Corrie and I, we were joined at the hip.  I miss her deeply still to this day.  She left us too soon, but I'm so grateful I was able to be part of her life and know her when I could.  My best high school memories were shared with her.   She had a heart bigger than anyone I know, was very artistic and talented and  applied a lot of these talents to our school yearbooks and newspaper.  Corrie spent most of her life struggling with epilepsy which suddenly and unexpectedly ended up taking her life at the young age of 19.  Her struggle with epilepsy kept her from a lot, like getting her driver’s license and when she would occasionally have a seizure during school, she was extremely embarrassed.  It was hard on her and she even cried when some of the kids didn't understand and accused her of being drunk.  But she always kept her chin up, stayed positive and made the most of every situation that came her way.  We miss you Corrie!  She will always be remembered and so grateful there is the page to help keep her wonderful memory alive.

I knew Cory from 6th grade on.   We were always friends.  She was an awesome friend.  At times we went through periods where we weren't as close as others.   She would always have my back though.   I remember that she was always nice to me.  Loyal was one word that you could always use when describing Cory.   She suffered from a terrible disorder called Epilepsy which ended up taking her life.   When she had attacks she would tell people that she had control.   I still miss her.  She was a special friend.

Corrie's passing was the first death of a friend I cared about that I have ever experience in my life. (OK, first death I have ever experienced, period.) I was so stunned how someone so vibrant could be gone so suddenly. I didn't know how to handle such a loss then, still don't now.
