Our prayers go out to each and every one of you, her friends in the gymnastics community, and most importantly to her family and friends in her life at home. As we receive more information, we will pass on any way that our community can assist her family in their grief. Please take care of each other, take time to talk about Corine and what she strived to show each of us; faith and family together take precedence over all else.
