My deepest condolences to the entire family, our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Cody was my elder brother's (Lorenzo Garcia) classmate in Benavides and I was 2 years behind them so I also knew him very well. We had some very good times growing up together in our beloved home town. May God be with you through this difficult time.

To my dear Tia Nilda and my cousins, I just want you to know that even thou life seperated us from each other and we didn't see each other often just know, that I love you all and pray for you all always. In this time I pray God comforts and gives you peace as you get together in this season of mourning for tio Cody. He will be missed, but the memories will stay forever. I'm glad I was able to visit with him last year & beg for a picture with me and then he wouldn't let me take a pic of him and my dad. The memories of our visits growing up were good. God bless you and I love you all🙏🙏❤️❤️🌹
