      Remembering all the fun times on Syracuse, playing under the street light and in the big culvert and burning down the field! So sorry for your loss.

      May it comfort you to imagine Todd enjoying frolicking in green pastures free of fences, taking flight, no worries of scorched wings, dipping deep in the pond, eyes wide open as one who has been set free. Thinking of you and your family with love, Houston. Lee Lou Mayo

      I was just told about Todd's passing. Our many antics on Syracuse street will go down in history as some of the best memories ever. That back field we rode motorcycles with the Drigger kids at, and more.

      Condolences to his family

      Todd and I went to St. Luke's private school together and we had some good times trying to duck and run from those nuns. Some great times at the lake fishing too. Rest in peace buddy.
