Corkey. You were special. I loved it when we got together. I loved you. I still do. Rest In Peace my dear cousin. My memories of you are sterling. You are a good man
Sarah Jane says:
We have lost a true treasure of a man. His kind and gentle soul will be missed by everyone. The last 50 years have been filled with memories at the lake. Our families have been neighbors and friends through good and bad days. We will all miss the sight of the "sunset cruises". But most of all, we will miss our friend and the Mayor of the Hollow. We have been blessed to have known him. With love and prayers for everyone.
