We were heartbroken to learn of your loss. No words can fix what you are going through, but please know your family is in our prayers. If there is ANYTHING AT ALL that we can do, PLEASE let us know. We personally didn't know Cody, but his paternal grandfather, Bob Suggs is my first cousin. His maternal grandfather, Buster, went to school with my wife Jean. His uncle, Matt Eby, went to school with my stepson, Steve Bitner, and they were friends. All we hear about Cody has been nothing short of praise, all who knew him, loved him. I am only sorry we never had the privilege. Thank you for giving the USA a son/grandson, who was willing to serve his country. He is and always will be considered a great American Hero.

My heart and prayers go out to the entire family. To his mother I would like to offer this verse from the Bible. It's from the book of Isaiah, chapter 66, verse 13: "As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you; and you will be comforted," says the Lord. I hope those words will bring you some comfort at this difficult time.

Having grown up in West Alexandria, I find it is difficult to hear of the death of a soldier from our home town. A loss of any soldier is sad, yet this one strikes deep within our heart.

Please accept our deepest sympathy. There are no real words one can say to ease your pain.

Your family and friends will be in our thoughts and prayers.

I am so sorry for your loss, it is never easy to suffer the loss of a loved one, but to lose a child is a special pain I wish on no one. Take comfort in knowing he is a true hero. Know that he loves you, and he will always be in your heart. Remember his life, tell his story, and share his memory with others. Pass his story into the next generation so that he will reside in their hearts as well.

To you I send a wish love and peace for your family.
