Today is about celebrating your birth… So, I’m gonna try and push all the “whys”, “what ifs” and how much you’re missed to the side and concentrate on the fact that you were born.
We were blessed with your presence in this world. Your talent, your beauty and your heart made - and continues to make - a difference in so many lives. You brought so much light into our hearts. I hope we can learn from you how to appreciate each opportunity, each moment, each accomplishment and each person in our lives! You taught us gratitude! You taught us compassion! If we could live how you lived this world would be a better place, we could make a difference!
You were among us for a very very short period… But you made every second of it worth it!
I love you forever!
Happy Birthday, my angel!
I’m gonna warn you that this is a very selfish post, so don’t get mad if you decide to keep on reading.

All this talk about grieving made me think and only gave me proof that it’s personal and reasoning has nothing to do with it.

I can’t believe it. I’m trying to read the articles but it just doesn’t make any sense. And it’s strange and I feel conflicted… Because the thing I always admired most about Cory is how “human” he seemed. He didn’t have that celebrity aspect that set him apart from all of us. And now I’m sitting here refusing to believe he’s gone. Like something so mundane and ordinary as death wouldn’t happen to him. From what every one who knew him is saying he never wanted us to see him like like this untouchable celebrity. And I’m failing him.
Being brazilian I remember when Ayrton Senna passed away. I was 14! He was my first “famous” grief. I cried for a week! I watched every TV show in his honor, I read every article. It was like a relative had tragically died. Until this day, when I hear his victory theme I break down. Nobody ever took his place in sports. And I never ever thought anyone would reach that status again. Boy I was wrong. And I wish with all my heart I weren’t. Cory will forever be my favorite Canadian. I’m heartbroken! I hope his family and Lea can find solace in his presence on this world. It was too short, but it was a very strong one.
Is it too much to ask for them to pair Lea and Cory for at least one Fox Lounge video?
