"I only have happy memories of Cory. He was not his addiction - unfortunately, it won. But that wasn’t who he was. Cory made me feel like a queen every day. From the minute he said, “I’m your boyfriend,” I loved every day, and I thank him for being the best boyfriend and making me feel so beautiful. The way he would look at me and the things he would say to me were really amazing. He was so supportive of everything I did. He loved being a good boyfriend. I got to do more with him in the time we were together than people do in their whole lives. We saw the world together. We have amazing memories. I’m so thankful for him for really letting me know how beautiful I am inside and out. I felt so unstoppable. He set the bar very high. And I’ll take that with me now for the rest of my life."
