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!

Hi John, Thanks for the blog mention and referring others. I've been pondering your posts, and boy -do you get around!! Bravo!

Re: Cody.. . It is always hard when someone in our group passes on but I think we must remember that we are more empowered from knowing them for the short time they were here on earth.

Take care,
Anne
