"Todd I will miss you dearly my friend. I will surely miss walking through your door and seeing that cheerful smile and the embraces we greeted each other with. I will miss watching the Eagles with you. 55 years of friendship wasn?t enough for me brother. You left us too soon. Like Peggy said every time I hear thunder it will be your drums playing and every lighting bolt will be your cymbals clashing.
Thanks for being such a great friend.!
"We shared the music together, which was totally cool and from childhood to young adults to most recent years never had a bad day with you, you always made me laugh. Thanks for being my friend. Mike ( Squid)"

"Todd it's so hard to believe you are gone. You will be missed by many..A special Thank you for taking me under your wing , i really enjoyed doing music with you and Analong Dinsaurs and recently Tru-Blu. We had a great gig on Saturday June 1st on the river. Well now you will be drumming for the big guy in the sky...whenever I hear thunder I'll think of you.

"Todd it's so hard to believe you are gone. You will really be missed by your bandmates Tru "
"Todd left us so suddenly, I still am struggling to grasp it. My last memory of Todd was him smiling over at me at our last gig at the boathouse, just a few days ago. It was a moment of a shared, silent joke. That is how I will remember him: playing his drums and smiling at the fun of it all. We will miss you in tru?blu. You were the rhythm that held us all together. I hope that you are banging on the drums right now with pure joy."
"Yo Brother!! Missing you more every minute. You left us WAY too soon. When we talked on Tuesday afternoon. i had no idea that would be our last of many conversations. I feel I have a BIG hole in my life now. There were not many problems that we as a team could not find a solution for. We worked together and helped each other through some of life's trials and tribulations. You chose me to be your Brother as you were an only child. I was the youngest of 7 kids , so I never had a younger Brother. That plan was a good fit for both of us. I'll always see you walking through our door with your smile and some wise guy comment to greet us. I will miss you my Brother Todd and all your nonsense too But mostly I will miss being able to count on you. You always had my back as I always had yours too. Rest well Brother and Godspeed "
