Back when Richard (my ex's father)and I first started our design agency in 1996, Richard use to drag his 14 year old step son with him to work to try and keep his nose clean. Cory would jet around the studio acting like our intern. My son Joshua just walked into my studio to tell me that his uncle Cory died. Tragic considering that Richard died just a month ago. Cory's mother just lost her life partner and a son that she was so proud of. My boys lost their grandfather and an uncle that they were very proud of.
