 Beloved son of my friends Junie & Papa
Allen, Steve was a wonderful man, whose
 fun-filled sense of humor and perpetual
smile earned him the nickname
SUNSHINE!
His parents take great comfort in the fact that
he believed in the resurrection Jesus taught
about and that one day they will be reunited...
.in the meantime, he will be greatly missed.   
                          Go with God, Steve!
STEVE SORENSEN  January 2010

 Agnes, my biological mother and I, found each
   other by the grace of God, about 10 years before
  she passed away.  Long enough for us to get to
 know and appreciate each other, and the fulfillment
    a lifelong dream for us both.    It also put me in
  touch with the rest of the Corleys.....a sprawling
Irish clan in New England  & began a close relationship
   with Agnes' sister, my Aunt Teresa, and of course,
her husband Nate who's been like a father to me for
                         which I'll be forever grateful!!

   Beloved  husband, father,  son, brother and
  uncle.    A dedicated man of God who loved
   his family & his church bringing countless
                           souls to Jesus!
  He will be dearly and forever missed by his
  family & friends....

                             daughter Mary

  GOD TAKES THE BEST

God saw that he was getting tired
And a cure was not to be
So He put His arms around him,
And whispered, "Come with Me"

With tearful eyes we watched him
suffer
And saw him fade away
Although we loved him dearly
We could not beg him to stay...

A golden heart stopped beating
Hard working hands at rest
Gold took him home to show us...
That God always takes the Best!!
