Guardian Angel: Cody Addition

This is one of those posts that everyone just dreads. 
I dread writing it.
You dread reading it.
But it seems like everyone's needing it right about now. 

To put it simply sometimes things just suck
And there's nothing we can do but try our darndest to make it not suck as bad. 
But in the end it still just sucks. 

It's been almost a year.
A whole year since we gathered to celebrate your life.
And I still feel like I should see you around town.
Or run into you at the store.
Or hear you say "Woah, Jeff Gordon" when I take the corner a little too sharp.
Or see you wearing those goofy diamond S earrings.

And I still feel like the summer we all spent together was yesterday.
Oh the trouble y'all got me into.
Still wondering why I agreed to play that game? 
Or why I ended up stranded in a the middle of a nasty pond fully clothed?
But it was the funnest summer.

I think it helped me come out of my shell.
So I'm giving you credit. Well, you and Mrs. Davis of course.
But you my friend, showed me that being quiet is overrated.
So, thanks.
Thanks for letting me be a part of your life.
And most of all thanks for being you.

RIP Cody/MacDaddy/Stud.
I miss you.

To Carie, Mike, and Cory,

There are a list of things I could say.
But words are words.
Just know you're not alone.
We miss him too.

With all my love,
