    Feels like I’m trapped in a horrible nightmare. My heart is broke. It was always suppose to be us. Trying to figure out how I’m going to do this thing called life without you. I’m holding on to a lifetime of memories and pictures because that’s all I have left. Love you always nephew…nah not really…brother:sparkling_heart:

  3. Thank you for allowing me the honor to help raise Lil Rob. Thank you for every good memory my beautiful wife has of you. Thank you for the gym sessions and the laughs. I learned a lot from you in the decade we co-patented and I’m sure it went both ways. I appreciate every piece of the person you were and the soul you still are. Thank you for helpjg bless me with lil Rob. What a great kid he is. Intelligent, intuitive, kind and caring above all. Until I see you again in paradise, RIP J. (PS. I will keep your proud memory alive through your son, through your living and breathing legacy. That’s my promise to you.)

  5. I remember when we first met at our house and you’d go with your sister Tenille everywhere pretty much. Hahaha You were about 12 and I of course was in HS, but you were such a funny little guy, then to see you around the crew we grew up with and remained friends with today. You are and always and remained to be until your departure a great man and greatly missed. got to see you sport the clothing I told you about and as God as my witness I pray he’ll make it happen for those you know today

    Funny as heck and loyal to family and friends. If they wanted it, you made sure they had it and if they liked it, whatever it was, you made sure they need not ask anymore, but just had to keep their eyes wide open. A visionary, a father, a brother an uncle a hubby to Rochelle and you kept her at peace and I thank you for that bro. Lil’ Jinx you are quite possibly the realest G I ever knew. I believe God had intended for one of his SOLDIERS’ to come home to fight for him, when he called you, even in such an early time as this. You Mr. Robert McCorkle aka Bobby aka Jinx are to many of us, you remained REAL and kept it 100 at all times. I can see you now Crip Walkin’ it everywhere you’d go, had us rollin’ with JOKES outta nowhere, snap-backs all day and making sure everyone was ALWAYS OK.

    If we could turn back the hands of time just to get one more joke or moment, even 5 mins. to say all that we all could, just to make sure everyone said something to you before you passed, if we could say something, anything and was granted that final time ALL of us with you, I bet none of us would be upset, ALL of us happy and ALL of us would be at peace and bustin’ a gut or two! Shoot maybe even tryna Crip Walk, BBQ, Cards and Dominoes as well, but we’d get to see the MAN you turned out to be and be prouder still and knowing that we ALL love and miss you and relieved you don’t have to suffer any longer, that you finally went home to he who gave us breath and that my lil’ brother is GANGSTA!!! Won’t say Goodbye but will say C ya Later lil’ brother!

    Your Big Brother on EASY Street always (even though one of us was always the tallest) LOL
