Dr. Deborah Loeff, I was blessed to know Cody and he was one of the sweetest and bravest youngsters I have known. He was a light in our lives and so many of those he touched at Lutheran General Hospital will miss him deeply. His spirit, humor and optimism will live in all our hearts. I hope that Cooper, his grandparents and parents will take comfort in knowing that he was loved by so many and we grieve his loss with you.
