On June 24, 2014, my youngest son, Kody Cook, died from an accidental overdose of methadone and clonazepam. Kody was just 20 years old.
Kody left behind family and many friends. Our lives have been shattered by this loss. Kody had an unforgettable smile and a great sense of humor. He was a loving, kind, honest, loyal, hard working, respectful young man. We miss him dearly.
Kody allegedly received these prescription drugs from a coworker. It was the first time he had taken methadone. It was a fatal choice.
Kody was a good person that made a bad decision and it cost him his life. My reason for sharing Kody’s story is to create awareness, bring changes, and promote accountability.
