    I taught Cody at Myrtle Grove. He was also a member of our Fellowship of Christian Athletes. He was always so passionate and truly cared about people. He is being held now by his perfect Father in Heaven. Prayers for your peace and strength.

    Dear Wendy I knew your precious son for as long as I knew you! He was like family! I even helped take care of him while I worked at the Grove. My heart simply breaks for you and as a Mother, there are no comforting words other than to say that if you need to talk, I am only a phone call, Facebook message away. Time will never heal this, I don't care what anyone says. I did counseling for EMS, but your coping skills ARE what is important. Please stay in touch and reach out to all that love and care about you, including me. Your baby will be missed! Sheila
