My condolences to the Smith family. I was saddened to hear of the passing of Cody and that we had lost touch since school. I went all the way though grade school with Cody and he's in a great deal of my memories. We had a lot of good times. He was the life of the party, watched out for his friends, and had an infectious smile. I'm sorry I'm unable to make it back for his service. Please know you're in my thoughts and prayers. Cody will forever be with all of us.

My nephew, I am so, so sorry for the loss of you. Too little time. Too few memories. Too soon. Too sad. Go in peace, dear one. Be at rest. My heartfelt sympathy to every life you have touched for you will be so deeply mourned and missed by deeply as you have been loved. Thank-you for the lives you have graced with you gifts of hope. What an awesome blessing you are and will ever be. I don't want to say good bye. Just until later. oxoxox Aunt deni

Dear Glen and Trevor,

You two and Cody have always been in our hearts. We remember you with the most affectionate and warmest feelings. You opened your home and took us into your family.
Even though life took us in very different directions you always remained a special chapter of our story, and been meaning to reach out for so long. Sadly, we did not do so before.It is by learning of Cody's passing that we get in touch again.
We were shocked and deeply saddened to learn about it. Our little bro. Such a kind and sweet person.

We offer our deepest condolences to you and all of Cody's loved ones.

I remember Cody coming to Delta to help his dad when Glen first started to work here. What a nice, polite, young man. So eager to help his dad out, and learn whatever he could teach him. My heart aches for you Glen. May the memories that you and Trevor have, get you through that days that lie ahead. My deepest sympathy. Hugs to you both - Veralyn

Glen and Trevor: As Beulah once said a child should never go before their parents. I am thinking of you and know it will be a long road ahead for you.

Cody was the kid I loved to have my kids hang out with. His sheepish smile and kind heart are my favorite of memories. Cody was a respectful, hard-working young man. He will be greatly missed.
