A memorial will be held for Jody this Saturday (Oct 11) at the Campus Center Den at UAA from 3-6 pm. In light of how my mother kept his friends and family away from his funeral and buried him far from anybody that he knew, I intend for this memorial to be a way for people to say their goodbye’s as well as honor him the way he should have been honored. Despite all the horrible things he experienced in his early life Jody still chose to be a kind and compassionate person. This memorial will follow in his spirit.
Thanks to everybody who’s helped out with the memorial or other things lately. I don’t think Jennifer or I could have made it through the last few weeks without your help. So thank you and we love you too :-)
