Funeral services in celebration of the life of our beloved Son’s home going will be held at the Beulah Baptist Church 92 Catherine Street Poughkeepsie New York at 11 am Thursday April 17th. There will be a wake for Kodi at the same venue on Wednesday April 16th between the hours of 5 and 8 pm. The Services will be broadcast on the web live @ www.Beulahweb.org. — with Kodi Kadeem Beckles.

My son was in such a hurry to get going, finish high school, start college, he was already discussing graduate school, he just got inducted into the fraternity he wanted to be a part of. He got baptized, he got me to stop smoking years ago, he wanted everything that was good for me. He was so kind and gentle. The world is a much less fun a lot less kind with his passing. I know my sugar will be
less sweet, my ice less cold, my warm less inviting, my sleep less restful. You came into my life and I struggled to protect and care for you, all the time I never realized you were caring for me. I will never be the same . Yet you would be first to ask  “Dad you ate, you okay” ? I will always love you, I will never stop missing you.

Outside the Memorial Hall gymnasium, a mass of people wait patiently to enter the double doors and take their seats in the bleachers. When walking through the doors, the bleachers are full, and ushers are directing people to sit in the middle of the basketball court. More than 1,000 people are present, mostly in black, somberly awaiting the start of the ceremony. Emotions are high as people continue to funnel through the doors.http://www.cardinalpointsonline.com/news/a-life-celebrated-over-1-000-paid-respects-1.2864401#.U1FTaPldWT0

God gave you to me for a reason, I now know he only gave you to me for a season. You were a brilliant light that shone through to my soul. You were everything to me. God, how I love you ……tears Kodes , how could you leave me like this>>. You always though I could do anything, I don’t know about this Kodes. I don’t know about this.

Proud of the the faculty and student body of Plattsburg State University for loving my son.

Many people live and die without ever getting a chance to see how appreciated they are . We would gladly give back everything we have been blessed with thus far, if we could have our Kodi back. It’s feels like a Pyrrhic victory. Even so I would like to acknowledge the legions of friends, relatives and well wishers who gave support to our family. Our load is heavy, our hearts are broken, words cannot express the way we feel. Notwithstanding, the level of goodwill all of you showed to our family was overwhelming. Surely we could never earn that much blessings. God favors us even when we could never earn the massive outpouring of love we received.Thank you to all of you our friends. Every word, every song, every card, every prayer, every gesture is appreciated. We thank you, now we must begin this journey, a journey we did not crave or ask for. We have one road-map and that is the promise of God through Jesus Christ. That some day because we accepted the sacrifice of his son’s shed blood we will see our son again. Thank you for loving and taking care of us. (mb.
