Cody Carpenter- My Brother-My Hero!!
(Waldron, Arkansas, USA)
My brother Sheriff Cody Carpenter passed away this year when our little community of Scott County was overcome with heavy flooding. On May 31st 2013 the Sheriff's office received a call from two elderly women who were in a panic due to the sudden rise of the creek behind their house. My brother and several of his deputies and Game and Fish Officer responded to this call.Upon arrival my brother took the life jacket from his deputy and got into the boat in an attempt to save the two women. After reaching the house they were struck by a wall of water and lost their lives. My brother entered heaven that morning doing what he loved, helping others. I know that this is not good-bye but see you later. As Christians we will see him again. Until then we will keep his memory alive in our hearts. Love and miss you much Cody!!
