Examples of corky in a Sentence

  1. Bobbi Ercoline:

    I see our picture, a couple in love. In the full frame of the picture to our right is our Marine Vietnam vet, Corky. He's sleeping so he's the peace. On the other side is the butterfly. That's hope, and I sincerely wish that future generations get that same feeling from that picture. There's always hope, no matter how chaotic. If you have love and peace and trust, there's always hope. And while I certainly wasn't a hippie back in 1969, I think deep in my heart I am one now.
