We camped out on the living room floor
In old sleeping bags by a make believe fire
In a tent made of covers we talked for hours
My sister and me
Keeping the faith; racing with destiny.
She was an angel in waiting
Waiting for wings to fly from this world
Away from her pain
Treasuring time, till time came to leave
Leaving behind, sweet memories
Angel in waiting; angel in waiting for wings.
She always knew she would never grow old
Sometimes the body is weaker than the soul
In her darkest hour, I made a promise
I will always keep
Iíll give her life;
Iíll let her live through me.
She is an angel in waiting;
An angel in waiting for me.
ANGEL IN WAITING
"I don't believe you could ever fathom how much your friendship has changed my life...You are the most courageous person I have ever met...Thanks for everything Codes, I couldnít ask for more in a best friend." [Letter to Cody written a few years ago]

"Cody was always beautiful. She was graceful. She was thoughtful. She was good. The list goes on, but the most important thing, that I think she would like everyone to remember, was her mind. She was intelligent, with a certain wisdom that can only come from truly understanding mortality. She did not want to be adored for her angelic face, but for her fascinating brain. So remember the conversations you had with her, her words, her ideas, her opinions, and not just her smile brightening a room."

"She was a celebrity...Her presence was so light and powerful and commanding, even when she was consumed with shyness...The magnetism of Cody wasn't a part of her personality because she spent so much time on stage early in life. Cody spent so much time on stage because of her magnetism."
