Marion I am sorry for your loss Corky was a good man and a good friend. Many years ago I rented a trailer space from him. Mt daughter was little at the time she had to have surgery and I was raising her by myself. I was out of work for awhile and Corky did not make me pay lot space that month. And he ran the store at the trailer park and he was working I paid for my purchase started to leave and he slipped some money in my hand and said maybe this will help you some. I know that now he is receiving his rewards in Heaven. You know we do not realize it but we really preach our own funeral by the way you treat people here on earth. He has done what we all have to do one day. I thank God that he allowed mine and Corky Fiels path to cross a fine man and I know he will be missed. I am praying for family for God to comfort you. Love ya to Marion.
