"Today is Destinee's Birthday Coty one of the best days of your life.  I know it's been awhile since I have wrote but it's one of the hardest things to do.  I always tell God to tell you hello when I pray. I want you to know i love you and I miss you so much !!!  I got all your signs you sent me letting me know every thing would be ok cause I know you knew I went into panic mode last weekend when I had not put flowers on the grave yet (which i did make it by Christmas)  Thank you for still sending the signs i missed them for awhile their which let me know you wasn't too happy.  Things have really changed and I can feel how happy you are now !!  I'm hoping for the strength to make it through today just as i did Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Destinee is so bright and smart and has so much of you and Tiff into her.  It takes my breathe some times the things she says it's just like you told her to do it.  Once when she hugged and kissed me it was just like you and your force was felt.  I couldn't wait to get home to just cry !!  I know you will be there in spirit today and your love will shine.  I hope i can keep my composer and your family also it's so hard on daddy that's how much we loved you !!!  But as the years have slowly creeped without you it's been hard.  I ask God to make it about her today and not our loss without you,, Life has been HARD !!!  You made such a IMPACT on all of us with that said Destinee carries your spirit  just help God make today OK for every one !!  I LOVE YOU !!"

"Oh how things would be so different right now cody, if you were still here. I still catch myself  asking God why? WHY? I can't grab a hold of nothing that makes any sense to me but I know God has a better plan. Lord knows cody how much i miss you man but god knows how much my precious neice , and your beautiful daughter  misses you. My sister  needs you more than ever n she turns in all the wrong places. I couldn't not imagine ever losing rachael cause know one can take the pain away from losing true love. I know you were her only  true love cause at times she starts to open up to me n as the tears start to fall she locks up and closes the door.  I know your watching over them today. You will always be close to my heart even if you never knew how much i cared. I always said when I found out you were a Dale Earnhardt fan I knew we would click just fine. RIP Cody"

"It was that dreaded day yesterday and it's the first time i decided not to come visit where you rest !!!!  But i decided last year i would not come again on 10~11 it's not because i don't love you it's because it's the very worst day of my life and i don't want to put balloons, flowers or let Destinee spread her rose petal on your grave yesterday was NOT a celebration I know i should look at it as a christian does and rejoice and know you have gone home and in a better I will sit here at home and have my memories and cry to myself all day I may be selfish but i didn't want you to go and miss you so much it hurts this day brings to much pain to everyone! I watch Dess and all she don't have none of us can give her and that's her daddy to catch her when she falls or teach her to play ball by pitching to her you not being at her activities at school or putting band aids on her boo boos just the thoughts that go thru her head .....i want you to know i hate that day and i can no longer come with her on this dreadful day. I love you and miss you !  But as i promised you one time if something happened to you NO ONE but NO ONE WILL TAKE YOUR PLACE AND YOUR CHILD WILL KNOW WHO YOU WERE AND YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN !!!"

"I just want you to know I'm thinking of you like i do every second, moment, hour, day and night. I know some who struggle over your loss son your brother, sister, momma, and me but it really was hurting Destinee hopefully you talked to God about it and put that bug in his ear over her.  I know your still around her cause she does so many things that are just like you but what gets to me is when she says things that i can see you saying or things like you use to say. I try to understand why the Lord took you from us and some days it's hard to keep my faith some of the days i guess you say the DEVIL is sitting on my shoulder making me doubt. But i tell him that MY GOD IS BIGGER THAN WHAT PROBLEM THE DEVIL WANTS TO PUT ON ME !  The one i know i have to be here for is your baby Destinee she does things that you use to do especially to me. Son one night when she gave me a kiss bye it was JUST LIKE YOU i felt as it was you it was so strange that i got scared but any ways i want you to know i will always love you and always always miss you till i see you again."

"Today I looked into the sky and it was beautiful. I then realized it's because you are there. I miss you...You just 29 in earth years i know your still your young self in heaven and that's what we remember.  Destinee as you know has been having a hard time lately wanting you! Some thing she can't have that's one prayer that can't be answered so if you would put a whisper in God's ear like i have to help her hurt for you. I love you and miss you and Happy late birthday son !!"
