To Todd's family,

I have fond memories of Todd when he worked at The First Presbyterian Church of Fort Wayne: always friendly, welcoming, and ready to help.

May he rest from his labors in the peace of our Lord.

I am thankful I was able to meet Todd at Englewood. He was a very funny, loving, and caring man. He had great love for Pam and Nicole, it was shown through his words whenever I spoke with him. It was neat to hear about the fun times his best buddy Tony and their families shared. Thank you, Pam and Nicole ,for sharing your husband and father with us at Englewood. The staff also showed great love for Todd through the care they provided and the daily jokes. He will be missed until we see him again someday.
