Henry, Helen, Chip, Michelle, and Jake,

There are just not enough words to express the sorrow in our hearts. However, there are not enough words to express what a gift you all and Todd have been to our family. Your presence has made us all the best we can be....... in good times & bad. We do not know what it is about growing up in the Red River Bottoms that links a person to your life even when you are far apart but somehow it does. Our family will love & cherish Todd's memory forever.

Although I haven't seen Todd in years since High School I aways considered him a friend. He was a lot of fun and very funny in those days. We went Dove hunting once and I don't think that I have laughed so much in a day. I pray for his family and let God welcome home home.
