President’s Message

Again let us thank God for blessing us to see another Corbett Reunion. 

When I think of our family and what I would like for us to embrace is this short message.

No man knows the minute or the hour, so for that reason and that reason alone, we ALL should take advantage of every opportunity given to us to enjoy our family and friends.

As long as God gives us breath in our bodies—it should be our priority to do His will and LOVE one another.

God Bless You All,

Pamela Corbett Chapman, President
Corbett Family Reunion Committee, 2008

 In Loving Memory



We Tell Their Story - A Family Reunion Poem

When we celebrate new life or weep over lives lost, we rise and tell their story. 

Their lives imprinted in our memory never to be forgotten, we rise to tell their story.

When we hear their voices in our own laughter and their song becomes the music of our lives.  As we grow older and their conviction becomes our own, we rise to tell their story.

When we're trying to remember something in time long forgotten and they are suddenly there stealing the scene and teaching us now what we could not understand then, we rise to tell their story.

When we visit the old homestead and smell the sweet smells, touch the textures as our hearts breath suddenly revived reliving moments long forgotten their lives rewritten in minds, we rise to tell their story.

When we are comforted by the sweet assurance that when we reach our destiny and come to rest we will neither be alone nor be forgotten.  For then you, our sons and daughters will surely have to rise and tell our story.

Because we we're born and we've been laid to rest and for all of life's celebrations in between we will once again awaken in someone's  memory who found a reason to step back into the past and touch a memory resurrected and rise and tell our story. 

And, O what a sweet, sweet story you will have to tell.

Wallace Corbett

 Wallace Corbett had a dream, a very special
dream – and we know that dream as “The
Corbett Family Reunion”!  Because of his love
and dedication, The Reunion was officially
Started in 1980.

 The following poem is lovingly dedicated to
Him and his dream…..

 I Shall Not Pass Again This Way
The bread that giveth strength I want to give;
The water pure that bids the thirsty live;
I want to help the fainting day to day;
Because I shall not pass again this way.

I want to give the oil of joy for tears;
The faith to conquer cruel doubts and fears;
Beauty of ashes may give always,
Because I shall not pass again this way

 I want to give good measure running o’er,
And into angry hearts I want to pour
The answer soft that turneth wrath away,
Because I shall not pass again this way.

 I want to give to others hope and faith;
I want to do all that the Master saith;
I want to live right from day to day;
Because I shall not pass again this way.
