Cody Paul Chama

Date of Birth August 21, 2007
Date of Death October 6, 2010

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!

Cody was preceded in death by his grandparents Burle and Cleda Newland, Domingo and Ruth Chama, Linda Mae Phillips and Ralph Cheek; his great-grandparents Raymond and Carrie Tyndall, Jose Chama, and Fred Garnett.

He is survived by his parents Paul Chama of Ponca City, OK and Amanda Chama of McLoud, OK ; brother, Brent Middleton of Horton, KS; grandparents Reyes Chama of Santa Domingo, NM, Violet Garnett and LeRoy Franks both of Horton, KS; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and extended family and friends.

Memorials may be given to the Cody Paul Chama Memorial Fund.

Funeral services for Cody Paul Chama will be held 10:00 a.m. Wednesday, October 13, 2010 at the United Methodist Church in Caldwell, Kansas.

Interment will be in the Caldwell City Cemetery, Caldwell, Kansas.

It was the morning of Aug.21,2007. My Uncle Paul called to say Happy Birthday! Uncle Paul told me he didn't get me a gift for my birthday, but he told me I had a new brother named Cody Paul and was born this morning. I told my Uncle Paul that was the best gift I could recieve. I was adopted out of the family and came back to meet them all. When my Uncle Paul would come to town I would meet with him and Cody. Cody would always talk and wanted to play. When we met at the pow wow Cody and I threw rocks in the river and played catch with his ball and glove. I know Cody is missed very much by all of us. Uncle Paul Cody is watching over us everyday and with us all the time. My prayers and thoughts go out to my Uncle Paul for the loss of my brother. I LOVE YOU UNCLE PAUL!!

Dear Paul,
We were not able to attend Cody's service on Wednesday, but have heard from several that it was a very large funeral service and that it was a very nice one in Cody's memory. You know that many, many people have you in their hearts at this very sad time. No words can really ease the burden you feel, yet may the memories you have of Cody in his short 3 years of life somehow sustain you. We pray that God will be with you always.
Sincerely,
Jerry and Marilyn Houlden

Cody sounds like an amazing child. My heart breaks that he has been taken from those who knew and loved him, and those who will never have the chance to know and love him.
Cody is grieved for by many @ thehinkymeter.com, where I learned of the tragedy of his death.

The Bryant family here in Horton, Eldon in Bluesprings Mo, Tammy & Josh Devlin and Brianna in Topeka, send you all their love. We wish we could have been there for services. Try to hold on....later on you may be able to breathe.

I am so sorry for the loss of your precious little boy. Even though I didn't get to meet him, I felt like I knew him through the things you wrote about him on facebook and his pictures. Although there are no words that could comfort a parent at a time like this just know that God is still with you every step of the way. I pray that He will ease your pain in time. Cody Paul will be remembered by many many people and his short life here on Earth has had such a profound impact on many lives and there was most definitely a reason God gave him to you. You were an amazing father and don't ever forget that either.

All I could do was cry when I read the story of this beautiful little boy and that was before I knew who he was. When I read his name and his fathers name, the shock was over-whelming. I am so very sorry for your loss. I pray that God holds you in his arms and helps you to know that your beautiful little baby is living with him again. I know words cannot take away your sorrow or your pain, only God can ease your heart and mind. God bless you and keep you.

David and Peggy Ginn

We have you in our prayers and Cody is in the arms of Jesus. We will keep you in our prayers each day as you grieve for your little boy. Let the Lord wrap you with His love and understanding and allow Him to grieve with you. As a teacher, Paul, I enjoyed knowing you and seeing your smile and playfulness. I am so sorry your little boy has been taken from you. If he was anything like his dad, he was very special. Love and God bless.
