I had the pleasure of working with Codi at Citibank and we had kept in touch off and on through the past couple of years. I'll never forget her infectious laugh and warm smile. She had the kindest heart and will be greatly missed. My thoughts are with you and your family.

Melody, I don't even know what to say, except you don't have to handle this alone!! You do have friends, and we are here to help! You were there when mom and dad passed away, and as hard as that was for me, I got through it only because of people like you. Let me help if I can!! You always need to remember that mom and dad are in heaven right now and they will watch over Codi!! I believe that with all of my heart.

Codi was always a shining star. Whenever I saw Codi, she was always smiling and she was always so happy. It was a joy to be her teacher. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this sad time.
