Cody was restoring a rusty pistol. This was a fluke accident to a young man who was very knowledgable about guns.

He gave the ultimate gift of his life by accident and his organs to save 5 other FL residents.

Hug your kids tonight. We will celebrate Cody's life not mourn his death.

I've found this site with limited info I had...

My very dear friend and mother of three small children received a liver transplant at TG the following day; we aren't allowed to know who/where the blessing came from but in case you were the family, thank you. I know many people are grieving the loss of what sounds to be a remarkable young man. I hope it will bring you comfort to know that he gave three little kids their mommy. Even if she was not the recipient of one of Cody's organs, thank you on behalf of those that did. May God bring you comfort as you mourn and may you find peace despite the candle flame that is now missing from your life. From all I've pieced together, it sounds as though he fulfilled his destiny in a mighty fashion.

Today would have been your birth day buddy. I miss you so much and i know you wouldn't want to see anyone cry but how could we not when none of this still doesn't seem real. We'll all see you one day again just know that you'll forever be in our hearts. I love you so much and i' am so sorry for the family just know you had a son that was one in a million, he could make people smile and laugh like there was nothing wrong to begin with. Cody your amazing. I still look up and smile every now and then because i know if you where here and saw me cry your exact words would be " take it like a man" thats what he always use to say to me. Ashley (sister of Cody) i love you so much, you've been through a lot just know i' am always going to be here for you.
