    My Cody, here it is 2 1/2 weeks and I'm just finding out about this guestbook for you. Our world is a much dimmer place without you. My heart is shattered and I'm finding it quite difficult living without you. Knowing how many hearts you touched in your short life is no surprise to me. I knew what an amazing young man you were. Until I see you again, I will forever love my number one grandson.

    My daughters loved you and talked about what a great kid you were and how you always made them laugh and watched out for them. We were sitting eating dinner the other night and they were telling me of all the things you guys did together and we were all laughing and then of course crying. We will see you again one day but until then you will be on our minds and in our hearts!

    I went to school with Cody, I started hanging out with him in his Junior year. He was very funny, he knew how to make anyone laugh even when they were upset or feeling down. He had a smile that would light up a room. He had helped me through some rough times and I am thankful for that everyday. He will be truly missed by many! He had a ton of friends who loved him very much. Rest in peace Cody! You may be gone but you will never be forgotten that's for sure.

    Watching Cody grow up from a child to man seems like only a few days ago. From watching the kids ride go carts in the back yard to Sam helping Cody making sure his "rides" were road worthy. We lost a wonderful young man to early in life. Sam, Ashley, Samantha, Emma & Silas - Our hearts goes out for all of you during this difficult loss.

    Cody had a smile that would light up a room and he used it often. I had the privilege of coaching him in baseball. He was never the most talented, but always worked hard and gave all that he had. We had recently spoken about the memories and good times we shared on and off the field. Our prayers and thoughts go our to the family. May God give you the peace to carry on.
