Reflections for Officer Michael J. Cody

Officer Michael John Cody was an officer first and a husband 2nd. He was so proud and so happy with the life he had found. W went every chance to see his loving mother. She was wonderful also. I remember once we went swimming in New Jersey. HE was such a clown. He turned me over on the raft he rented. I was afraid of deep water. But was so funny. I loved him more than life. Another time he stayed out all night with his friends, never called.0. I sprayed his with Spray Starch and he itched all day. He never did that again. He was the head of our house and took care of everything. I knew that God sent him to me. I still love and miss him. When he died I died too. He was and still is my heart and soul. On his anniversary I go to the bridge and set balloons of. I have seen him and he is okay. God is taking good care of him. I know I will be with him soon. But in the meantime, God knows what happened and he will take care of it. I haven't stopped praying for him and the truth. I will always love you my husband.

While I was only a child when my Uncle Michael died, I still think of him all the time. He was a great man. A soldier, an officer and a family man. I miss him very much. I miss the world that could have been, had he lived!

THe Lord gave me to you and the Lord took you away. You are with our father and next month, July 14, 1969 is your anniversary. I pray for you every day and night. I know that you are watching over little Michael. You gave me a perfect life and marriage for such a short time. You were wonderful and corageous. You cared and loved your family with everything. No one can ever know what kind of man you were and only the love of God wraps you with more love than you ever had. Bless all that remembered my husband and keep you safe in your everyday jobs. Next month will be 39 years that I have missed you. I can never have a life. But I will always have your love and your son. God bless you, my husband, as I am waiting for you.

"My Brother"

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He was idealistic and believed he could make a difference.
He was immensely proud of the uniform and the badge and what they represent.
He felt privileged to be of service to his department, his community and to his country.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He was friendly, courteous, and polite, yet firm.
He laughed and joked, but was serious when necessary.
He was competent, trained, and professional.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He had a strong sense of right and wrong and became
frustrated when true justice became sidetracked.
He felt the sharp criticism that goes with the job, but he
never wavered.
He stood by and for his fellow officers.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He longed for his family during the long hours.
He worried about them during his shifts and the lonely
weekends, holidays and midnights when they were apart.
He felt guilty about the lost time, but knew his calling
and prayed they would understand.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He was a good son, a loving husband, and a devoted father.
He was dedicated to the profession and cared about the
people he served.
He wanted to do the best job that he could and strived to
be the best he could be.
He was a good citizen and a good neighbor.

He was a cop.

Yes, I did know him.
He was a cop, he was my Brother.

Rest easy Brother Cody, we have the watch...

I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.
Isaiah 6:8

You answered the call and made the ultimate sacrifice. Rest easy in God's kingdom and watch over us as we continue the battle here on earth!!!

Rest in peace, Sir! You are not forgotten.

I'm glad to see you're still remembered. This is for Ofc. Hawfield, too. The city has changed since you both died. To think someone stole Ofc. Cody's service weapon as he lay dying in the street; what a sad example, although not too far off from what would happen today. The city is at war. More teens have been shot this year than ever. Teens! I don't know how MPD officers do it, day in and day out. My hat's off to you all! You all are remembered today.
