Three years ago my best friend wasabout to get married, I was 7 months pregnant and was delivered the news that Cory had passed I was weary to get too emotional in fear that I would go into labor too early. Not only was cory the most genuine, always the guy to stop and say hi to fans, but he made everyone around him laugh….obv this photo is proof. He was our family. We miss u bud. #3yearswithoutcory
