To the family:
You don't know me and I did not know Jody but I am a cousin of Michael Comins. Denise (and family) I am so sorry for your loss. Losing a sister is one of the most difficult things ever. Sending you all hugs. Keep the memories close- they will help sustain you in the coming times. You are all in my prayers.

Rest in peace Jody. I won't forget all of the time we spent together at Pizza Hut and those Monday morning conversations of all of the weekend events. You were the best and longest salad bar prep person Pizza Hut ever had. Your salad bar always looked the best. Your smile and friendly face will be missed by all. Finally you and George are together again just like the old days.Always your friend Dan Marsh.
