In Loving Memory of
Cody Wayne Fugate
September 27, 1993 - December 19, 2001




Cody's first Christmas and first time with Santa, in December of 1993.


Cody's second Christmas, spent in the hospital in December of 1994. Cody is eating Snicker doodle cookies
and this is just a week after his transplant.






These are two special Christmas gifts for Angel Cody from my friend Marie.
You can visit her website for her son Rob here ~ Rob Northrop's Site.



Christmas In Heaven
I see the countless Christmas trees around the world below
with tiny lights like heaven's stars reflecting on the snow.

The sight is so spectacular please wipe away that tear
for I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.

I hear the many Christmas songs that people hold so dear
but the sounds of music can't compare with the Christmas choir up here.

I have no words to tell you of the joy their voices bring
for it is beyond description to hear the angels sing.

I know how much you miss me, I see the pain inside your heart
for I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.

I can't tell you of the splendor or the peace here in this place
Can you just imagine Christmas with our Savior face to face?

I'll ask him to lift your spirit as I tell him of your love
so then pray for one another as you lift your eyes above.

Please let your hearts be joyful and let your spirit sing
for I am spending Christmas in heaven and I'm walking with the King.

Author's Note: "Lysandra Kay Bencke was my thirteen year old handicapped daughter. On Christmas day 1997, Lysandra had a seizure and was in a coma for five days before she passed away. During those five days I wrote the poem "Christmas in Heaven". I sent it out in belated Christmas cards to over 100 friends and relatives that year. They have also sent it on to other friends and relatives, thus how the poem has been changed
and the story behind it."

Both of these pictures are from Cody's sixth Christmas, December 1998.

Holidays In Heaven
The Holiday Season is just not the same,
A smile is missing when saying one name.
For parents who’ve lost a daughter or son,
Nothing can bring back the delightful fun,
Of watching them talk, laugh, or just run.
The memories are all that we do have now,
We do go on…..only God knows how.
A New Year comes as midnight arrives,
Our Angels still a big part of our lives.
If only we could trade the presents we receive,
For one more day with those whom we grieve!
But nothing can bring back our beloved child,
The one that laughed, cried, and often smiled.
They are together in a much better place,
Watching us cry…..touching our face!
Although we miss them on Holidays to share,
Be assured their loving presence fills the air,
At home, in church, at New York’s Times Square!
So celebrating the Holidays are now hard to do,
But always remember they are thinking of you too,
Wishing you happiness and showing their love,
Not on this Earth, but from Heaven above!

I Will Be There
Written by Sharon J. Bryant
Mom, tomorrow I will be there
Though you may not see
I'll smile and remember
The last Christmas, with you and me

Don't be sad mom
I'm never far away
Your heart has hidden sight
My memory will always stay

I watched as you touched the ornaments
Sometimes a tear was shed as you did
I touched you gently on your shoulder
And on tiptoes I proudly stood

I'm only gone for a little while mom
I'm waiting for the day to be
When God calls out your name mom
We'll be together, just you wait and see

But until that time comes
Carry on as you did when I was there
I tell the angels how much I love you
There are angels here everywhere!

I stand behind you some days
When I know that you are sad
I want you to be happy mom
It would make my heart so glad

So on this Christmas Eve, Mom
Think of me as I will be thinking of you
And touch that special ornament
That I once made for you

I love you mom and dad, also
I know you know I do
And I'll be waiting here for you
When your earthly life is through
Love, Your child in Heaven



Our Christmas Angels



On Christmas Day 2000, Cody inspects his PS2 games, and Cody poses before opening another present.


Cody's eighth Christmas with Paige and Cole, December 2000.







On a much more light-hearted note, I am including the lyrics to this song below because
Cody's mom told me how much he laughed when he heard this song...



GRANDMA GOT RUN OVER BY A REINDEER
~ by Elmo & Patsy

Grandma got run over by a reindeer,
Walking home from our house Christmas Eve,
You can say there's no such thing as Santa,
But as for me and Grandpa, we believe.

She'd been drinking too much eggnog,
And we begged her not to go,
But she forgot her medication,
So she staggered out the door and through the snow.
When we found her Christmas morning,
At the scene of the attack,
There were hoof-prints on her forehead,
And incriminating Claus-marks on her back.

Grandma got run over by a reindeer,
Walking home from our house Christmas Eve,
You can say there's no such thing as Santa,
But as for me and Grandpa, we believe.

Now, we're all so proud of Grandpa,
He's been taking this so well,
See him in there watching football,
Drinking beer and playing cards with Cousin Mel.
It's not Christmas without Grandma,
All the family's dressed in black,
And we just can't help but wonder,
Should we open up her gifts or send them back?

Grandma got run over by a reindeer,
Walking home from our house Christmas Eve,
You can say there's no such thing as Santa,
But as for me and Grandpa, we believe.

Now the goose is on the table,
And the pudding made of fig,
And the blue and silver candles
That would just have matched the hair in Grandma's wig.
I warned all my friends and neighbors,
Better watch out for yourselves!
They should never give a license
To a man who drives a sleigh and plays with elves.
Grandma got run over by a reindeer,
Walking home from our house Christmas Eve,
You can say there's no such thing as Santa,
But as for me and Grandpa, we believe.

Sing it, Grandpa!
Grandma got run over by a reindeer,
Walking home from our house Christmas Eve,
You can say there's no such thing as Santa,
But as for me and Grandpa, we believe.
Merry Christmas!!!!









In Remembrance of Your Sweet Angel Cody
With Love

I wrote your name on the sand, but the waves washed it away.
I wrote your name on the sky, but the wind blew it away.
I wrote your name in my heart, and forever it'll stay.




A friend can hear a tear drop.
