Half a year. That’s how long it’s been since the Lyster family of Aurora experienced the unfathomable – the loss of their son and brother. Cody Lyster was just 21 when the coronavirus robbed him of a promising future, making Cody the youngest person in Colorado – and still one of the youngest – to succumb to the virus.
“I think now is really a good time to focus on these kids and say, ‘You know, it doesn’t just affect older people. It can affect younger people. Perfectly healthy people,’” said Kevin Lyster, Cody’s father.
