I also know his family and was a good friend of Pauline Bevels who has also passed. May God hold u in the palm of his hand and give u comfort at this time of your loss. God Bless Yall.

He was one of the kindest souls ever & I so enjoyed following his career Jan, I feel your loss because he was totally in love with you and that is so difficult to lose. May God be close by your side in putting him to rest following a short life well lived. I love you Todd forever & ever Amen! Someday we will meet again & you can do Wipeout & Mona Lisa Lost Her Smile for me once again! My life is richer for knowing you. God bless you & your family.

    So sorry to hear about Todd. I regret that I never had the opportunity to really know him personally. He reached out to me at the death of both my parents and that really meant a lot to me. I know that he was a good man who will be truly missed. I apologize for not making it to his service.
