Farewell (Tot Ziens) to my good friend Cor
I’ve written about Cornelius (Cor) Van Egmond from Oskaloosa several times over the years. He’s one of Osky’s famous (infamous) Dutch characters/cronies. I like characters. I hope I will be remembered as one myself.
Cor passed away Sept. 7; he was 86. In typical Cor fashion, in the later days of his failing health, early one morning he yelled to his son, “Take me to Hospice!” Hospice was not to come to Cor (short for Hard Core, perhaps?), Cor would go to Hospice.
Unlike the manner in which he lived his life, which might be called “rambunctious animation,” Cor passed away quietly in his sleep. All nine (count’m nine) of his children were present.
