Statement from Family of Cody Myers
10/05/2011
The following statement from the family of Cody Myers was read during Wednesday night's news conference
 
"Words cannot convey the sadness we feel.  This was such a senseless killing.  
 
Cody was the kind of man that this country needs.  He was kind, gracious, respectful and gentle.  He was a role model and example for his family and virtually anyone with whom he had contact.  
 
Cody was very spiritual; his life choices were guided by his religious readings and his belief in Christ.  We thank God for sharing Cody with us.  
 
As his father, I learned a lot about life from him.  He taught me about determination and drive, about setting goals.  I knew he was destined for a life in the ministry; he thrived on helping younger people.  
 
As a brother, Cody was inspirational, warm and caring.  It would be difficult for anyone to understand how really special he was.  Cody helped to hold our family together during difficult times.  It will be hard to imagine doing things without him being there to help us.  
 
We’ve received so many calls, emails and messages offering us support and the comfort of prayer.  People we didn’t even know called to let us know they were thinking of us and praying for Cody.  It’s so good to know that with all that’s going on in this world, there are still good people out there. We can’t thank everyone individually, but know that your concern was appreciated.  
 
We do want to thank the many law enforcement officers who helped bring a swift conclusion to this investigation.  We also thank the media for their coverage of Cody’s disappearance; we know it helped to bring Cody home.  
 
Thank you"
