Cora has been in my thoughts and prayers so much. I would visit with her weekly and we’d laugh and sometimes cry just chatting about life. She was always encouraging me and I her. She was so strong and empowered me to always strive for the best for myself and my kids. She shared a lot of memories of her life’s journey with me. I’m very grateful for the times we shared and feel honored to have known her. Thank you for your friendship and grace, Cora. Rest In Peace.
