    Jody, although we didn't hang out much at Columbus, I will always remember how kind you were to me when I was the "new kid" in second grade at Blessed Sacrament. Such a great smile!

    I also remember when we dropped you off after school one day, and Mom backed the rear wheel of the Impala off the edge of your driveway! *That* was a fun afternoon... 

    Be at peace, Jody, and know that your family is in our prayers.

    My condolences to the friends and family of Jody.  My memories of her are from high school.... bopping down the hallways, always a smile on her face.  May you rest in peace in the loving arms of our Lord.

    You were a beautiful person both inside and out... your smile could light up a room!

    Fun loving and generous to a fault, I wish that we would have stayed in contact after high school but life got in the way.

    Good lesson for all of us to remember, we are here but such a short time on this earth, family and friendships are what's important so make a point to reach out.

    Your family is in my thoughts and prayers, sending love and strength as they say goodbye much too soon.

    Rest peacefully my friend, may God hold you and your family close.

    Until we meet again Jody...   🙏❤🤟
