Cody,
Not a day goes by without me wanting to pick up the phone to call you. Although we didn't know each other very long I was blessed for the time we spent together. No one could ask for a better friend. You always offered words of encouragement along with a laugh. I always looked forward to you, Jake, and myself getting together... knowing that there were plenty of laughs in the future. You were so thoughtful of others and so kind. I love you my friend and you will always be in my thoughts. Heaven gained one of Earths All Stars...

My beautiful boy, I will always treasure the times we shared. going to the movies after school then to eat. All the times you spent the night and we had such a great time. You always had that big smile on your face, telling a silly story to make me laugh. Angel and I loved it when you and Bandit would come and spend the night and we would walk them around the complex. I enjoyed cooking with you and making up stories that were too silly. And now I don't have the words to describe how I feel knowing I will never see that smile, hear the laughter and enjoy a big hug from you. You made everyone happy and smile.I love you now and for always. I will see you soon, my sweet boy, love mamaw and Angel~~ Be at Peace now~~~
