I drove all day yesterday to get to my parents home. In the evening as I was in bed, I was reading my email, this came from my college bestie:
"I have had the privilege of knowing Kori since our freshman year in college. During those days you would often find us in a piano room in the music building singing our hearts out while Kori played the piano. We would spend a couple of hours if not more singing some popular songs, but also songs that Kori had written long before. I remember my favorite piece was called "The Admiral". I was inspired by her talent and her ability to make the piano sing. Many can play, but she could make it sing as if she was born with one in hand. I can recall when we would be down about schoolwork, weather, or boys, we would go into a piano room and sing away soon lifting our spirits ready to conquer another day.
Those memories are precious to me. I have been truly blessed and am honored to have had Kori in my life for all these years. Music is a part of who she is. Seeing her follow her heart and dreams of becoming an accomplished musician has been inspiring. May we all follow our heart and not be afraid to go after our dreams.
Love you Kordles!!
Your friend always,
I have to say when I read this, I had tears welling up at the memories. We named ourselves "DeSkies" and hoped one day we would be able to record in a studio. Years have passed, I went on to record 3 albums, and we still talk on the phone and keep in touch with one another. What a blessing to have Tracey in my life.
And now, I turn to you my "internet family" for your help. No matter where you live on this wide planet.. you can be a part of "Fire in the Rainstorm". Come today and stand with me and you can make memories with me!
