on behalf of Tara Connell
 ORLANDO, FL
Please join the College Park community in supporting the family of Cory Connell, whose life was cut short in Sunday's mass shooting in Orlando.  It is evident by the outpouring of love on Facebook that Cory's smile and kind heart touched many. Please consider assisting the Connells  with travel and funeral expenses, lost wages or whatever they may need during this heartbreaking time. The money from this fund will go directly to Cory's mother, Tara Connell, for her to use and distribute to the family at her discretion.

We will continue to update you as we learn more from the family. #corystrong

Please join the family for Cory's wake and funeral service this weekend. The wake will be Friday evening, June 17 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. and the funeral service will be Saturday, June 18 at 10:00 a.m. Both will take place at West Orlando Baptist Church at 1006 E. Crown Point Road, Ocoee, FL  34761.

Tara, sending my deepest condolences for your tragic loss. We attended Evans High together and our sons attended Edgewater High as well as worked at different Publix stores yet didn't know each other. I have not stopped thinking of you since this has happened because we have so much in common and can't imagine how you feel but sincerely know that my son will fight to keep America Free as he serves the US Marine Corp and your son will never be forgotten.
