II Timothy 4:7-8 "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give me on that Day, and not to me only but also to ALL who have loved His appearing." Rest in peace Cork... rest in peace. May the Lord bless your family.

What a great guy! Cork's smile could light up any conversation and what a sense of humor he had. Between Cork and Linda, the joy and love was obvious--a match surely made in Heaven by a gracious God. We have no doubt the good Lord is enjoying showing Cork his new home sweet home--his forever mansion. We will miss you, Cork. Until we meet again, Darrell & Angela
