Remembering Cousin Cory

We spent Saturday in Seffner, gathered together with the Davis side of Daryl's family, to remember Daryl's cousin Cory. Cory died back in March at the age of 39 and this was our opportunity to be together and to bury him next to his grandparents in the old Seffner cemetery.

Daryl officiated the service of interment to celebrate Cory's life and reminded us of the depth of God's love and our hope for the future. Grandmommy put together these great bookmarks for everyone with pictures and tributes from Cory's siblings. 

After the interment, we all headed back to Grandmommy and Grandaddy's house to eat lunch.

Cory was a very talented artist and chef. So it was pretty fitting in remembering him to have Micah make bananas foster for dessert. Micah is a senior in the culinary academy at Armwood HS. 

Davis had fun with a new playmate. He made friends with cousin Robert's daughter Charlee. They are both named for their great-grandparents, Davis with Howard and Emma's last name and Charlee's middle name is Emma. They made special forts under the pool table and behind the couch.

It was a sad occasion to gather for, but we honored Cory by spending good quality time with one another and we even took some family pictures.
