Today would have been your birthday Todd. I still think of you all the time and wish our days in West Hollywood could return. We laughed and went to the Gold Coast bar to eat peanuts for dinner when we had no money. I will always love and miss you.

We knew each other as children, I regret that we did not know each other later in life. A smile is upon my face with so many memories. A tear is in my eye knowing that you are missed.

Oh my God, Todd I have been searching for you for 3 years. It's Elisa your ex-roommate from W.Hollywood. I forgot your first name was Royal. I finally found you today 8/14 only to find you have gone. I would have come to see you. I have never, ever stopped thinking about the great times we had. This can't be happening. How could I finally find you but I'm a month late? I feel like I've been stabbed with a knife. Todd's mom use to send him Russian Tea Cookies and I would find him in the kitchen with powdered sugar all over his face. We would eat them and laugh hysterically. How can I express how much I loved you? You were the brother I always wanted. We have so many memories together. I am crushed. I have so many stories about us...

Todd, from when we were locker partners in High School until you left us, you were family. All the adventures, the antics, the lives we had were amazing times. You always told me that no matter where we were or what we were doing, we'd always be friends. Aside from my husband Tom, you were the most important person ever in my life.
To Ray and the family, all my love and sympathy for the loss of such a beautiful husband, son, brother, Uncle and friend. All of you and Todd will forever be in my heart.

Thirty-two years ago a young man smiled and the whole room glowed. I will be forever thankful for those 32 years with Todd being my best friend. The light in that room has now gone out but it will burn in my heart forever! Rest Toddy, rest.
