Carol, Bryan, and Boys You had a big decision to make and I know Sunday you weren't looking forward to that. God knew you heart was heavy and he knew you would have done verything in your power to help your brother. But he needed Corky and he made it easlier on you. He took him home to be with him and you MOM. All the pain in his life is gone now and he is free of all his worries. It will be hard to live without him I am sure but he is free of any and all pain he was having. God Bless you and your family. I am sorry you alll have to go through this.

Corky was a great guy that was great to be around. He taught me a lot when I started at Algoa and he will be missed.

I worked for many years with Corky at Algoa Correctional Center and enjoyed being around him. As a Non-native of the area, Corky clued me in on a lot of things but some things were just funny stories. I know he missed his Mom and now they are together again. My sympathy to the family and may the perpetual light shine on him. Gary Storey Freeburg, Mo.
