A Year Gone By

I’m not going to lie, this is has been a very difficult week for the many people who loved Corey and spent time with him in the ICU and at Hospice this time last year. I wanted to share this post from Corey’s cousin Mikayla.

1 year way too long without Corey Lee.

Last year my heart painted a canvas while my cousin was in hospice care. I say my heart because the recollection of me using my hands to paint is non existent.

Today My heart finished my 1 year tribute piece for my loved cousin. This painting is a representation of how strong my family has been through this year. How every morning we wake up and decide to continue with life cause not only would Corey want that but we know everyday we wake up is a day we can reach out to someone who struggled like Corey did. I cannot tell you how much stronger my family tree is not because of what happens but because we know we can impact lives like Corey did with ours and many others.

This is a hard hard time for my family and I while we grieve the 1 year date of my cousin passing.

Corey is missed to extreme levels. We love him and will always love him.
