    My condolences on Todd’s passing, May you find comfort in the many wonderful memories that were made during his 44 years, You are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Jean and Wendy

  5. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Have some wonderful memories of being at Cornell Lake with you and both of our parents. Todd is now welcomed home by Mouse and Marie.

  6. Greg and Tami, Chuck and I are sorry we could not make it to see you. We wanted to tell you we were thinking about you and to offer our sympathy. This brought back memories of Todd for us. Chuck remembers the time Todd was sitting in the front seat with him and Greg and thought he was helping to drive our old Scout on the road leading to your cabin. Take care and may you find the strength you need at this time.

  7. I was so saddened to hear of Todd’s passing. I don’t know if you remember me, but I was Todd’s special needs teacher at Elk Mound and I absolutely adored him (and your daughter, Kari, as well). I smile when I think of Todd because I have so many wonderful memories of him. He was such a hard worker, told it like it was, and was such a good friend to his classmates. I also remember the pride he held as the football team’s manager and especially his trip to Madison when our team went to state.
    I think of the love Kari and Todd had for each other and how they looked out for each other. (I was Kari’s cheerleading coach, so was honored to know her, as well.) And, I also remember the love and respect you displayed for both of your children, and I always admired you two as parents. Please accept my sincere condolences and know that both of your children were very positive forces in my life. Bless you. Becky
