Cody brings new and innovative ideas to the families we serve while honoring the traditions of his Sand Mountain roots. “As a minister I have had the honor to council with families that have experienced the loss of loved ones, both young and those at the end of a long happy life. I have assisted families as they made decisions on how to honor their loved ones and helped those who wanted everything taken care for themselves by pre-planning. I find it a great privilege to serve those in need both spiritually and physically.”
What does the CFSP stand for?
