When Tharin first moved to Orlando, he & Cory lived with me for a while. He was smart, caring, and made Cory happier than I think I'd ever seen him. Such a beautiful soul that loved and was loved by so many. I'm so sorry that he's not with us anymore, but I know his light will shine on forever in everyone whose lives he impacted. Rest in peace, sweet man. You fought harder and longer than most of us could ever have managed.
