I remember Vonnie and how kind she always was to me. I hung out, in grade school and junior high, with Craig and would go to their house sometimes. She was always in a good mood, smiling and kind. I was so sorry to hear of her passing. I also knew Levi since he loved bluegrass and all us Corey boys ended up playing it and would run into him sometimes. When at her house, about all those kids mentioned were still in diapers but I recall many of the names. I recall her mother being Ray Harriger's sister and we knew them well, even Courtney and Cassie. Life is awfully short but my Clarendon days will always live on, along with all those memories of the good people - like Vonnie.
