My heart aches for all of you. Like Kristy, I have fond memories of family vacations to New Jersey to see you all and Grandma. I remember going to Seaside and riding the ferriswheel, playing tag in the neighborhood, and then as we got older, family dinners, weddings, and more celebrations. Through it all Todd was always there with that grin he had-making me wonder what story or joke he was going to tell next.
From the many memories posted here, Todd had an impact on many others and will truly be missed.
Vincent and I are so sorry for your loss and hope the many wonderful memories you have will get you through this time.
Love, Kim (cousin) and Vincent
