Cora Aurelia-Ann Bridges
Cora Aurelia-Ann "Corrie" Bridges, 5, of Kings Mountain, NC, passed away on May 27, 2020 at Levine's Children's Hospital in Charlotte, NC. She was born in Rock Hill, SC on December 10, 2014. Corrie was a remarkable little girl who was wise beyond her tender years. Her creativity, curiosity and grasp of her own spirituality evoked an inspirational example for all. Corrie's awareness of the world around her and her compassion for people was unmatched. She possessed an ability to communicate with people. Corrie was an independent thinker and always full of ideas who enjoyed sharing those ideas with her friends and family. She was keenly aware of people's challenges, whether physical or mental and was concerned with everyone being treated as equals. Corrie was inspired to help others because her brother, Charles, is diagnosed with autism. She loved her brother Charles with all her heart and did not mind standing up for him whenever the need arose. She exemplified the meaning of her "brother's defender and helper." Her understanding of the world demonstrated wisdom beyond her years. Always a helpmate, Corrie loved helping her Mom in the kitchen, and her Dad outdoors and her brother with anything he needed. She enjoyed telling stories, listening to Christian music and singing her favorite song, "Happy Birthday Jesus." Corrie loved Frozen, sang every song, and owned almost every item from the franchise. She was a loving little girl who loved the Lord and her family with all her heart. Her mommy wrote, "Corrie, you are so beautiful, the sun and moon would envy you, if they could envy."
