A lot of you know me (even though I'm listed as a 'new member'), but I need to know what are the staging arrangements for the funeral on Friday, so I know whether or not to take off the entire day or just part of it (end of six weeks on Friday and it takes a lot of planning to be off). LCPL Stanley was a student where I teach who I have previously met. He was very well liked and thought of by all of us here at Smithville.

FYI (in case you don't have the information already), here is an e-mail we received (the school staff) from the minister handling the memorial services in Smithville. Use it as you see fit:

The visitation at the funeral home is scheduled for Thursday, 4 pm to 8 pm at McCurdys in Lockhart.

The memorial service has been set for Friday at 10 am at the First Baptist Church in Smithville.After the service, we will proceed to the cemetery outside of Lockhart. We'd like everyone to come to the First Lockhart Baptist Church after the graveside service and have a meal with us.

They went to the First Lockhart National Bank and set up an account in Cody's name to benefit the Wounded Warrior organization.

The obituary will run in the Lockhart, Bastrop, Smithville, and Austin papers on Wednesday.
