My Beautiful Little Boy, Cody


Melissa Ford

My beautiful little boy, Cody, Golden hair, big blue eyes, he was my little angel. We always knew there was something very special about him. He died December 20, 1994, 3 years ago. We had his funeral on Christmas Eve. He died of Chronic Granulomatous Disease (CGD), a very rare genetic disorder. We did not know he had this or that I was a carrier until 6 mos. ago. He left a 5 year old brother, Kyle, behind who is very lonely and still asks about him constantly. Cody was so loving and sweet, he always knew when we were sad, he would crawl in our lap and hug us so tight. We miss him so very much. Not a second goes by that he is not in my thoughts. It has been three years and it still feels like yesterday, all the painful memories at the hospital seem to overshadow all of the good memories. Sometimes I long to be with him where ever he is. He is the lucky one, his short life affected everyone around him in a very positive way. He was a ray of sunlight that shone on all of us. I will never forget you Cody you are my little angel. I love you dearly, Mommy.
