Please know that you are all in our prayers. Corbet was a wonderful man! My mother, Wanda Armstrong, lived across the street from Corbet & Sophia for many years. He cut Mom's grass, took her places, was so good to her. Corbet will always have a special place in our hearts. May God Bless you all and give you peace and wonderful memories at this difficult time. Love and Blessings to you. Bill & Pat
