    Always going to remember the good times, Korine. Had a lot of fun on nights out and that time you dyed my hair super blonde when I was at Mansfield. You had a great sense of humor and I’ve definitely missed you. Enjoyed seeing you at work and making jokes when you’d refer to me as your little cousin. That was great. Rest In Peace my cousin.

    My dear cousin, Michael, I only met your loving wife when I resided at her place of employment following a surgery. She ran the second floor at the facility and don’t know how they will ever find another so dedicated to her mission in life.
    I am sending my sincere condolences and pray for strength for you to carry on without her here on earth. Love, Cousin, Angie
