Kendrick Cody Hammond

It is extremely hard to say goodbye to another young, kind soul. Cody was a wonderful person to be around. He was always smiling and I never heard him be mean to anyone. He is greatly missed by many people. My prayers go out to his family and friends. I believe I am lucky to have been able to call myself his friend.

We Miss and love you greatly

We Miss and love you greatly Cody and hope to see you soon up in Heaven!!

Negative Comment

First of all I really dont think this is a time for the negative comment. If you had a HEART you would be adding a comforting comment to the family and friends of Cody. None of the Boys knew what was going to happen or I can assure YOU they wouldnt have put themselves into this situation. This is very hard for everyone in this town to deal with losing a child at such a young age but GOD has a reason and a plan for everyone. May god be with you! My prayers are with the family and friends of Cody.
