Cody was my friend and partner at the Scott county Sheriff’s Office from 1996-1999. I remember his excitement the first day he rode with me on patrol. I will never forget his smile and passion for doing “the next right thing”. I think about him every day. We did not always agree but I never doubted his heart and his love for God, Family and community

John 5:28, 29 - "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I pray that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.

A portion of a letter from the pen of President Abraham Lincoln, printed in the Boston Evening Transcript on November 25, 1864.

“I feel how weak and fruitless must be any word of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic (he) died to save. I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom.
Yours, very sincerely and respectfully,
A. Lincoln”

God didn’t promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain; but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears and light for the way.

Rest in peace.

My sincere condolences to his family and colleagues. From Spain a fellow of the Guardia Civil.

Tú nos dijiste que la muerte
no es el final del camino,
que aunque morimos no somos,
carne de un ciego destino.

Tú nos hiciste, tuyos somos,
nuestro destino es vivir,
siendo felices contigo,
sin padecer ni morir.

Cuando la pena nos alcanza
por un compañero perdido,
cuando el adiós dolorido
busca en la Fe su esperanza.

En Tu palabra confiamos
con la certeza que Tú
ya le has devuelto a la vida,
ya le has llevado a la luz.
Ya le has devuelto a la vida,
ya le has llevado a la luz

Cuando, Señor, resucitaste,
todos vencimos contigo
nos regalaste la vida,
como en Betania al amigo.

Si caminamos a tu lado,
no va a faltarnos tu amor,
porque muriendo vivimos
vida más clara y mejor.

You told us that death
not the end of the road,
that although we are not die,
flesh of a blind fate.

You made us, we are yours,
our destiny is to live,
being happy with you,
without suffering or dying.

When the penalty reaches us
for a lost companion,
when the pain goodbye
searches Faith hope.

In Your word trust
with the certainty that you
and have you back to life,
and you've been light.
You've already brought back to life,
and you've been light

When, Lord, rose again,
beat you all
you gave us life,
as in Bethany's friend.

If we walk by your side,
will not fail us your love,
because dying live
clearer and better life.
