Jodi, Leslie, and family. You all are in my prayers. Still today I think of you often and the struggle you must be going through. I pray that God lightens your hearts. Todd was such a "special, special" man and anyone who's lives he touched were truly "blessed" even if only for a season. Know that he is in "Good Hands" and good company ...and will forever live in our hearts and memories.

Words can't express the sadness I feel upon hearing about the loss of Todd. Todd & I went to WC together and shared many class together, Cherish the memories that you have, as I will. As Heaven gains another star, may God rap his loving arms around you and the Lyons family during this very difficult time, may God's love bring you the comfort and the strength to get through all that lie ahead.
