In Memory...

Corbin,
I want you to know that you have taught me many things in these past 3 months. Faith, Hope, Strength, Courage have all been a part of that. I think the biggest thing though is how to Fight. How to Fight for the right reasons and not to give up. Determination in getting there. Perseverance in during the Fight. You were much much much stronger in your 3 months than I have been in my 24 years. Reading about your journey has touched me to the deepest part of my soul. I will never forget your struggle. I will never forget your journey. You brought such joy to so many people, your mom and dad in particular. I hope you know your mother is an amazing person. She has kept her footing so firm throughout this whole ordeal. I have no idea how she did it. It amazes me that she can be so sturdy in a time of fear. I wish I had that. If it were me, and I were in her shoes I would have lost it a long time ago, but she didn't. I think you get that Strength from her. Your dad is a good man. I don't know him personally but I have seen how he has been there for your mother. I know he's hurting and he'll show is pain in a different way than your mom, but know little Peanut that he himself has shown a lot of Strength as well. Corbin your brother has no clue what is going on. It's hard to tell when he'll understand just what happened. I hope he knows what a lil' fighter you are and you'll teach him to never give up, no matter what the odds are. You have blessed this world with your presence. Thank you for being a part of all our lives even if it was for a short while. Keep watch over  your mom and dad. They need to remember that you are always there for them. Keep watch over your big brother. Remind him each and every day that you're watching over him. I pray that your family will get through this with as much Strength as they have had throughout these past 3 months. Corbin, you are not gone. You are still here. I can only hope that you're watching over me and my family as well. Give your mom, dad, and brother a hug from me, ok? 

Lots of love,
Erica
