For those of you that don’t know….. Cody Sanders passed away Friday, June 26,2015 from injuries sustained as a passenger in a motor vehicle accident. At the young age of 18, Cody was a vibrant young man with the potential to be anything he wanted to be. He brought such joy to our lives with his bright smile and willingness to help anyone. So now it’s our turn. Cody has been raised by his “Ma”, (grandmother) for the majority of his life. With her health condition she has been in an assisted living relying on monthy Social Security checks.  No one expects to bury their child, with Cody not having insurance getting the arrangments set up are heartbreaking. No one will help with out payment up front. I am making this in hopes that WE as a community can help lay him to rest. Thank you for anything you are able to contribute. Large or small, it all adds up.
