How do you speak what your heart feels at a time like this? Ever since we were young couples sharing life with our little kids, Corinne was very special to us. Her warmth and humor made us immediately comfortable, and that warmth was always there. She accepted people unconditionally - what a wonderfully loving trait to have, and to pass on to her children and granddaughter, Brooke.
Corinne and I met in Beta Sigma Phi sorority in the early 1970's and it didn’t take long to establish the close friendship we shared all through the years since then. On family camping trips she and I would get the kids and husbands all tucked into bed and then go out by the campfire, set up our lounge chairs, lie back and look at the stars and just talk and talk. I could, and did, tell her anything and everything, knowing it was safe within the walls of our friendship. That was another of her wonderful traits – I knew I could trust her completely. She was a loving daughter ,sister, wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, and friend to so many. We are sure that she touched the lives of so many people in ways she may never have known.
I know your family has many stories to remember and tell here and there when you get together. That's what it's all about - remembering and sharing and passing stories on to keep her there close to your hearts. She will always be in a special place in my heart that only she could fill. We will miss her more than you know.
With love -- Larry and Toni
