Cody Paul Chama was born on August 21, 2007 to Paul and Amanda Chama in Hiawatha, Kansas. He died October 6, 2010 at Oklahoma City, OK. He was 3 years old.
Cody Paul was a bright energetic little man with a big smile and a “Hi! What’s your name?” , every time he met someone. He had such a big heart; he loved his family and friends. We’d go through a list at bedtime. It would start with “My mom, my dad, my Brent”, and so on until he’d named everyone. The list was always getting longer so we started going to bed earlier.
He loved to dance. Every time he heard any kind of music he’d start dancing. It didn’t matter where it was. He loved to laugh and make people laugh. He amazed people for how well he talked and said his ABC’s and counted too at such an early age. He would sing a lot to daddy and mom. He loved to talk and would always ask daddy and mom, “Are you my best friend?”. Of course we would tell him yes. He’d just say, “yes best friends, I Love you!”. It was never “ hold me”, he’d say “I want to hold you!” That was so Cody bear. He had his own little things he would do to show how much he loved his parents and family. With that Cody, High Five, dabs, skin, kisses and hugs, I Love You!
