THE SUN IS GONE

Corey,
Today is our chance to say thank you for the way you brightened our lives, even though God granted you but half a life. We will all feel cheated always that you were taken from us so young and yet we must learn to be grateful that you came along at all. Only now that you are gone do we truly appreciate what we are now without and we want you to know that life without you is very, very difficult. We have all despaired at our loss over the past 24 hours and only the strength of the message you gave us through your years of giving has afforded us the strength to move forward. We will move forward. For you Corey, we will go on.
Thanks for everything,
EIT (I just don't feel like typing any exclamation points today)



Sorry about the skipping video. It was late. I was upset. And now I can't delete it. I tried, but my hand just couldn't do it. In the end, it is kind of a shitty memorial.

Nice reference, Heather. If anyone is interested, The Cinefamily is presenting Cory's 1990 Futureskate film, 'Prayer Of The Rollerboys' next Saturday, March 20th. For more info, check out http://cinefamily.org/calendar/saturday_late.html#futureskate

RIP Corey, you'll always be trapped in the basement of my heart.

I really was sad that he passed away. Anyone aged 20-30 grew up watching The Coreys.

Despite the skipping, I still think that was one of the better memorial videos I've seen. RIP Corey H

I think the skipping actually works well. Sorta fits the Floydness.

Shine on, you crazy diamond. *tips hat*

I've never commented, rather just lurked and marveled at this fucking wonderful site.

Whether you are old enough to know what it was like to be a fan of this kid when you were a kid or not - that was a bad assedly appropriate tribute.

I agree with mr. gnome0tron--the skipping seriously makes this better, somehow. Cheers.
