After a long and painful battle with cancer, our beloved friend Cory passed away this afternoon and is finally free of the body that has imprisoned him for so many months. I am so grateful to know that he is with our Savior and to know that we will see him again someday. Though we are broken-hearted, I want to take this post to celebrate the life that he shared with us.
We've taken more trips together than we've taken with our families.
We've probably taken more pictures too.
Cory was always one to appreciate a good meal.
And a good laugh.
At the horse races. We didn't have much luck.
But that night we had some great BBQ.
Lagoon - oh ya, walkin the wild side.
Cory was always trying to steal a kiss.
Sometimes he got lucky.
Little Wild Horse Canyon - We are quite the physical specimens, eh?
Gettin' our dance on - a month before their wedding.
Our favorite thing to do - dining out.
Hmmm, dining out again. We REALLY love it.
Sometimes Craig pops up in their photos.
Sometimes Cory pops up in ours. Just accept it.
Our trip to the Oregon Coast, our last vacation together.

I couldn't have said it better. These pictures are such a small part of the joy and good times we spent together. There is a piece of our lives that is missing and will never be filled. Candace, we love you so much and are so sorry that you have had to endure this trial. Please know that we are here for you and love you.
Cory, we will miss you, more than we can say. Till we meet again.
