    My heart has never felt such deep pain for the loss of a friend. Cody was genuine. He has a big heart and alot of love for his children. I wish with all of my heart I had taken his offer up when he asked me to go out on a dinner date with him. Its going to take a long time to accept him being gone he just did not deserve this!! If i had just one wish for anything in the world I would wish for this to have never happened and he would still be the sweet Cody randomly asking me if I'm okay when he wasn't. Rest easy sweetheart and rest in peace. Love always, Kelly

    I was in Vocational School with Cody we never really got to hangout much outside of school but we did have a lot of fun during school then after we graduated he went off to college and kind of lost touch since other than social media of course. Miss ya buddy gone but never forgotten.
