    Mr. Cody Frank Jennings Was One Of The Few That I Was Blessed To Have Had An Opportunity Too Meet & Worked With As Well As Become A True Friend With Him Throughout The Last Couple Years. He Was Also A Really Good Friend & He Always Had A Glow & Smile About Him; It Didn’t Matter The Situation Or The Topic Of Conversation . I Really Enjoyed Working With Him And Not Many Can Work As Hard As He Could. He Loved His Job & It Showed In The Many Landscapes That He Completed And You Could Tell He Put Love,Sweat,Tears & Compassion Into His Hard Work. His Heart Was Beautiful As The Flowers He Had Planted & Made Bloom Like He Did Throughout His Life. He Poured Life In All The Trees And Bushes Even When They Would’nt Bloom You Could Always Tell He Put His Special Touches On Them By Watching Them Transform & Bloom Again Afterwards.
    We Love You Man Sorry You Left Us So Suddenly And Tragically. I Guess The Good Die Young In The Many Cases I Have Experienced. “Let Your Spirt Flow Freely Like The Waters You Canoed On & Blossom & Bloom In Your Spirt In Your Afterlife Like You Did With Many Things Here On Earth”Sorry Your Time Here On Earth Was So Short We All Loved You Man And You Will Always Be In Our Thoughts And Prayers My Man .

    Such a great person so friendly and just smiled all the time no matter what, he truly was talented at what he did and will be missed by some many. My 96 year old dad loved talking to him as well as Frank did with dad. We will truly miss him but he will always be in our hearts.

    Cody grew up with my oldest son and was around a lot especially in their younger years. Cody was always very polite and just an all around great kid that became a great man. Prayers for you and your family and friends always.

    Sometimes you don’t realize how much a moment means until it becomes a memory. One of my fondest memories of you was the night before the family reunion where we pulled an all nighter on Aunt Genny’s porch and talked about anything and everything. Those conversations are core memories now that I will hold onto forever. I regret not keeping in closer touch with you. We all love you. Fly high, cousin. ♥️

    There still isn’t words to explain the shock and emptiness. When I met frank it was instant laughs and friendship, he was my future ex hubby lol he loved my crazy and I loved his smile and infectious personality. As I drove down ft Morgan rd after finding everything out a song came on the radio which will now forever be my frank song…….. give heaven some hell by hardy. “Man I don’t know if the other side is ready or not but I hope you hit those gold streets on two wheels, hope your mansion in the skies got a 10 acre field with some mud and some hubs you can lock in make some noise and make them wonder how you got in.” ❤️

    My sweet boy. I miss you. Our long talks, our laughs, the refrigerator full of BLUE PowerAde, our beautiful OBV and most of all your talks, LOVE and laughter with Randy will always be in my heart. Your love for SOPHIA was unmatched except for your LOVE of GOD. I am so happy you, Randy and myself had that conversation. I can see GOD smiling as he watches you and Randy laughing as you WALK THE STREETS OF GOLD. Your OBV MOMMA…. Linda❤️💔❤️

    Frank was truly a one of a kind person. Over the last couple years I got to know him and always enjoyed seeing his smiling face .
    Frank was always upbeat and positive and ready to help with answers to questions about plants, trees and the like. He put his passion into making our Village look it’s best and like many others will truly miss his presence!
    My heart goes out to his daughter and the rest of his family , I can’t even imagine their heartbreak at this difficult time. I feel blessed to have known Frank even for the short time that I’ve lived in OBV ..
    He will truly be missed because his loss will be felt my many of us for a very long time!! Rest In Peace my friend !!

    I won’t tell you about the first time I met Cody, nor our last day together. I won’t detail being stalked by a mountain lion, throwing horse s#%@, 24 years of piss and puke, nor canoeing into the heart of a storm. In all of that I was never not impressed by his combativeness, sheer stubbornness, attitude and humors. Above all that his generosity and genuine heart. He and I often spoke about forgiving ourselves. In that vein I ask anyone who loves that man forgive our enemies, neighbors, those who now rest and above all yourself. Thank you Cody for the laughs, scars, tears, stories and hard earned wisdoms. In the words of Dr Thompson “there he goes. One of God’s own prototypes. A high powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production” thank you brother I love you
