    Dear Jim,
    I am so sorry to hear about Todd’s passing. No words could ever be said that can change the fact that you are not supposed to bury your own children. May God comfort you and all of your family at this most difficult time. Although I have never met Todd, if he was anything like you, the world has lost a wonderful man, husband and father. My heart goes out to you and you will be in my thoughts and prayers. Hugs my friend you know I will be here for you in the days and weeks to follow.

    Dear Jim: Just found out today about Todd’s passing last month. We have a group of IC grammar school buddies who meet for an annual reunion and keep in touch via email. So sorry for your loss and praying that God is guiding you and your family through this unbelievable sadness. I still miss Grace and remember her often in my prayers, and will add Todd to those prayers.
