    Cindy , I just saw Todd in June. He was gathering groceries using a list and marking it off as he went. I remember thinking that you probably made that list for him. He was always kind and polite. We are offering our condolences to you and your family.

    Cindy, Jonathon and Lauren. We can’t express how sorry we are for your loss. We got to know your family through L.C. baseball. We saw how dedicated Todd was to the kid’s sports and family. He was always a nice man with a big smile on his face. There was no doubt how much he loved his family. He did such a selfless act. He definitely received a star in his crown when he went to heaven. Your family has been and will continue to be in our prayers. God bless all of you.

    From day one there was never a finer guy than Todd! The guy was always a mellow fun loving guy and was good to anyone who knew him. This is certainly heart wrenching but just as he did on earth – Todd will Triumph on the other side!
