|Cory the Pied Piper
Cory was a modern day version of the piper. Whether he wanted them to or not, kids loved him and would follow him where ever he went. (I think he secretly enjoyed the attention.) I remember children of mom's friends crawling all over him like he was a jungle gym. I even remember one girl that he tried to scare away with his smelly feet, but she liked smelling them. (No names I don't want to embarrass her.) The short year Cory was here to get to know his nephew, he beamed with pride. He even pretended that Dominic was his son at one point, whether it was to impress a girl or scare her away, I'm not sure. It saddens me to think that Dominic and Abigail (Cory's new niece) won't get to know their uncle and play with him. I'm sure they would have loved to spend time together. You can be sure I'm going to tell them all about Cory, the good and bad. That way when they do meet him someday, they'll know who he is and catching up won't be so hard.
