    We are so sorry for your loss. We know that this is a time of great sorrow for the family. We lived next door to Cod for 20 years and I knew what a kind man he was. He was always concerned about Dan having to drive in bad weather and he loved Bliss (our Yorkie) as he loved dogs in general. He delighted in giving Bliss a treat, petting her, and scratching her bellie. He will be missed by all who knew him and he is now at rest in a better place. Rest in Peace Cod. I’ll give Bliss a little hug from you!

    With sincere sympathy. Cod was a true role model for those of us who hired on with the ‘phone company’ after him.
