Fourth of July

by Veronica Parker, Sharon Parker-Miles, and Joshua Fink


On the Fourth of July,
In the kitchen eatin’, laughin’, jokin’.
On the Fourth of July,
In the kitchen readin’, singin’, textin’.

Korey said, “I’ll be back, fix my plate,
Shish-kabobs and baked beans will do.”
Korey said, “get together every holiday,
You cook the food and I’ll bring the wine.”

On the Fourth of July,
In the kitchen eatin’, laughin’, jokin’.
On the Fourth of July,
In the kitchen readin’, singin’, textin’.

Korey loved many things,
Like basketball, and eatin’, jokin’.
Korey loved family,
Especially his son.
Korey was a family man,
A son, a brother, cousin, father,
Korey was a happy man,
Smilin’, helpin’, advisin’.

On the Fourth of July,
In the kitchen eatin’, laughin’, jokin’.
On the Fourth of July,
In the kitchen readin’, singin’, textin’.

Korey is loved by us,
Missed by us, remembered by us.
We celebrate him every holiday,
Korey will be with us forever, and ever.
Especially on the Fourth of July

On the Fourth of July,
In the kitchen eatin’, laughin’, jokin’.
On the Fourth of July,
In the kitchen readin’, singin’, textin’.
