Gahhh i miss you sooo much, ill just sit down and start thinking about you and I will start crying but then I get to thinking your happyer now, and it makes me happy. I love you Cody, save me a place in heaving with you. :)

Love,

No outsider can really feel the pain of a friend's passing. Especially one so horrible as drowning. Dear Haley, keep on thinking about the good times of you and Cody's friendship......sorrow, pain, and betrayal will always be there....unless the beautiful overcomes it. And whenever your heart is breaking under that sorrow's iron rod; I can promise you will find that self-same aching deep within the heart of mine. Keep in mind the plans for hope and a future.....yes, just move on and don't look back.
I'm here for you, too. :)

I MISS YOU CODY!!!!!!!!! :'( I love you Cody! I know your up there in heaven. I hope to see you soon buddy.. :(

I'm sure that, if Cody was here with you, your unfailing grasp of Love, he would see (and has already seeing). Only you in your heart will know this pain, dear Jeremy. Yes, Cody will recognize his buddy.....when the time comes, and he looks at you. :) For now, steady strong and silent, your life awaits a carry-on beautiful future. :)
I'm here if you need, too.

Cody i cant blive this happen I LOVE YOU so much you are always in my heart we will meet again 1 day and i know that is always true AND THE PEOPLE THAT WANNA BLAM IT ON THE BOYS U R JUST SOOO COLD U HAVE NEVER HAD A HEART AND NEVER WILL I WILL PRAY 4 MR.KEN AND EVERYBODY I KNOW THIS WAS HORRIBLE I KNOW EVERY1 OF THE BOYS THAT WENT 2 THE WATERHOLE THAT HORRIBLE DAY MAN I LOVE YOU CODY!!

Such pain....it tears your heart into a million broken pieces and dissolves them in the depths of despair. We ask ourselves WHY such a doubting world can take away our friends so violently? Dear SUM1, I'm sure Cody asked that question sometimes too. I cannot ever truly understand your pain.....but I know that constant reminders of what could now be is not the way. A great and beautiful future awaits you, and I can guarantee that courage and perseverance (along with your very deep love for your buddy) will be the key there. No one is to blame/
I'm here if you need, too.

Cody was a wonderful young man and deeply loved by many, there are no words to express the grief that his family , his church and his community are dealing with at this time. Cody all i can say to you is that you touched so many lives and changed so many lives we love and adore you, and i know the angels in heaven are in awe of you, you have such a loving and generous soul, and we shall meet again my friend. Love Miss Donna

As I am in awe of your strong heart, Donna! I will never understand truly your pain, for the water has never claimed a life I once loved and cherished. But despair cuts deep wounds into our hearts, and I urge you now to let that Love for your friend over-triumph. You have a beautiful future ahead, so if you must periodically look back....just don't look down. :)
I'm here if you need me, too.

RIP CODY!!! West Bladen misses you!

My heart is ruptured in two when I think of all of Cody's faithful friends and family. There empty eyes, with no more tears to cry. Empty hearts, silently pleading for peace in their shattered world. I can not ever truly know their pain, but I can pray that each and everyone of them will claim their awaiting futures like soldiers. Moving on, like Cody did, into Heaven....a wonderfull place indeed, dear West. :)
I'm here if you need, too.

Vespertine ....... I am Cody's mother . I would like to know who you are
