“Mi más sentido pésame a toda la familia de mi amigo Kory. Fuimos compañeros de trabajo por muchos años. Fue un muy buen amigo y para el yo era “El Chiquis.” Que vayas con Dios mi amigo, Kory.”
Please accept my deepest condolences for my friend’s loss. Kory and I were coworkers for many years. He was a great friend! He would refer to me as “El Chiquis.” May his soul Rest In Peace.
“El Chiquis” and his Family
Jena Lovelace says
I met Kory approximately 20 years ago. As a teenager/ young adult I can’t recall a time there wasn’t a smile on his face. He didn’t take things too seriously and if you were around him you didn’t either. As a long time friend of my daughter’s father and his family, Kory watched my child grow up. The group of friends that he had was tight knit and long lasting. While I haven’t been in Kory’s life for some time now, I will always remember him fondly. My heartfelt condolences go out to his wife, children, family, and friends. I know many will miss his smiling face.
Timothy See says

May the Lord grant you all the peace that you need and comfort as you deal with your loved ones passing.
