Corey Dell (Almost Mrs. Richard V. Correa)
"He just had a different calling. It was to be an Army Ranger. He had hopes of doing Delta Force, special operations." --Corey Dell, Fiancee
Good Mourning, Widows.
Joy to you.
Today we welcome the almost famous widow, Corey Dell, almost wife of famous Army Sgt. Richard V. Correa, age 25, from Honolulu, to our joy-ous club.
Who says you gotta have a band of gold to belong?
Sgt. Correa died serving our country on May 29, 2007. He was killed by a roadside bomb in Ilbu Falris, Iraq.
Assigned to Fort Drum, NY, Sgt. Correa was on his third deployment in Iraq, due to time extended by our country's President, George W. Bush.
Surprised at his tour of duty being extended, Sgt. Correa wrote on his My-Space web page, "I ain't ever coming home!!!"
Sgt. Correa hailed from the Filipino's and lived in Honolulu. Said his fiancee, Corey Dell, "He gained his US citizenship in November." As reported in The Journal News, White Plains, NY, newspaper, Sgt. Correa loved to surf and he loved Hawaii.
We salute Sgt. Correa's valor, thank his family and fiancee for making the Supreme Sacrifice, extend our sincerest condolences, and wish them mourning joy all the day of their lives.
Q: What does a 6-feet tall, red-haired, green-shoed butcher weigh?
Don't know what you got until it's gone. They paved paradise to put up a parking lot. --Nickel back, "Far Away"
After we remember Him, fingerhug your pen. Open your joy-nal. Set the timer for ten.
The topic is: What's gone in my life...
So what are you waiting for?
Write something. Go ahead. I dare you.
Have an abundantly joy-filled day, Widows. And remember, we're not alone.
