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.

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.
