Cody Namesnik 1978-2008
On Saturday, July 19th, an aquaintance of mine with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy passed away after losing his battle with pneumonia. Cody belonged to the internet group, DMD Pioneers, which I too belong to. I chatted with him from time to time on Yahoo! Instant Messenger. He was always kind and good-natured and had a sense of humor. He also had a love of animals. I may not have known him as well as others, but I am deeply saddened by his loss. Anytime I hear of the loss of a fellow DMDer, it hits me personally. They are all brothers in the common struggle against this disease. It was nice knowing you, brother!
