Corey was our 22-year-old son who loved to fish, hunt, exercise, and play basketball. He did everything a normal 22-year old boy would do. Corey was also a graduate of Mankato State and had a job working with his dad at Midwest Appraisal. He had beautiful blue eyes and a quirky personality. His grandmother always called him a tall drink of water, which he was at 6’4’’. Corey was a beautiful boy who had everything going for him and that is why it is so hard to understand why he would take his life.

 

Our family had no signs and no answers as to why he would do such a thing and this is the reason we want to get the word out on suicide awareness. We were not able to help our son, but through suicide awareness we may be able to help someone else’s son or daughter.

Thanks for doing the run  Wanda Blaedorn
