This page dedicated to my hometown of Milwaukee. It’s a city that is indeed, ingrained in my physic. A city where I grew from a baby to a man, with the added help of my service in the United States Army. Where I was married to Sandra Moseby, where our three kids, Shawn Lynn, Richie and Codis Brandon was born. My parents, aunts, uncles, and cousins are buried in Milwaukee.  In other words, it is the city of me and my wife’s roots. Although now living in Pittsburg, California, I will always love and remember Milwaukee as a family town filled with relatives, friends, and great memories.

Peace and Love from the West Coast to you all,

Codis Hampton II,   champtonii@yahoo.com

And that train ride. The view was fantastic. It was a long trip but worth the ride…all except when we had to go down the stairs and climb back upstairs from the bathroom. See for yourself…
