Happy 14th Birthday in Heaven Precious Cody

 


I see this face and the hurt begins all over again. My precious Cody, today would have been your 14th birthday, a year ago I never would have ever imagined that you wouldn't be with us today. One day you were here, and like a blink of an eye you were gone. It's all a blur. A heartbreaking blur.

I miss you EVERY SINGLE DAY. I miss you sitting next to me on the armrest of the couch. I miss looking into your sea green eyes, I miss your quirky little mouth. I miss your cuddle bug ways. I miss yelling at you for trying to chew everything you could get your paws on. I miss sharing chicken with you. I miss your calm and easy-going nature.

Sometimes I think I see you out of the corner of my eye. It comforts me to think that you are here, in some form, I believe you are. Please know that even if Roary joined our family three months after you left us, there is a place in my heart that is ALWAYS YOURS.....ALWAYS......YOURS AND YOURS ALONE.

I love you and miss you my "Codester", my "Jelly Belly", my "Codalicious", my "Cody Boy", my "Cuddlebug". I pray with all of my heart that you knew how deeply you were loved.

  4. The firsts are the worst, but the ones that follow are always still heartbreaking. So sorry he is gone, but he sent you a wonderful new rascal to keep you on your toes and Cody is with you in your heart 24/7/365. I'm sure he sends you signs if you look for them.

    1. he most definitely does. You know, poor Roary....I call him "Cody" MULTIPLE times a day...there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of Cody or talk about him....and often I feel signs that he is around. xoxo

  21. Happy birthday at the Bridge, Cody.
    Birthdays and anniversaries are so hard but we never ever stop loving them.
    I talk to Eric and Flynn every day and always say goodnight to them and will continue to do so as long as I have breath in my body.
    Love and hugs as you remember your dear boy.

  22. What a sweet memory of dear Cody. We saw his passing in our calendar and wondered if he would be in a post. That was silly to even wonder Cody is The Cat and he will be in everyone's heart Forever

    1. Hi furiends, Cody actually passed on June 30, 2020. There WILL be a post on that day. I have posted a few things about him since he passed, but not an actual "memorial" per se. I have to do things my way, and for now, it's still too hard. My husband made me feel better yesterday when I said his birthday post is too short. He said "you don't have to write a lengthy blog post to honor him".....however you choose to honor him is what is right for you. Sending lots of love xoxo

  27. Your sweet boy will forever be in your heart, and it will be filled with wonderful memories. I lost Smokey just before her 9th birthday and it was 6 months before I could look at another fluffy gray cat without tearing up. 18 years later I will still tear up if I dwell on her passing, but then I focus on the wonderful things that made her unique. We will carry them in our soul forever.
