I am sorry to hear of Jody's passing. We attended CHS together and were good friends while there. After graduation, I just lost contact with a lot of my friends from CHS. Jody was one of those.
He was a unique individual and I always enjoyed the times we joked and laughed together. May God bless your family as you recall all of the great times Jody enjoyed with you.
