    Your grandchildren who loved you so dearly will miss you. You are forever in their hearts. You were a mother to Leslie and you always treated me so very special. Rest in peace.

    You were more than my grandmother. You were my “Ma”. I will never forget you. I don’t want to. You will live in me every time I crochet a blanket, sew a dress, paint a picture, eat a cream cheese sandwich, or hear Neil Diamond. You blessed me with support, encouragement, and an ever-present ear to listen to every joy and woe. You loved me unconditionally and believed in me. Our relationship was special, indeed. I thank God for the time He gave us together and I know, without a doubt, that you are safe in the care of our Savior. I love you. ~Leslie

    My Dearest Mable, I will miss you forever and remember you with undying love in every thought I have of you and some crazy attempt we made at something. I will forever be thankful for whatever I did right that rewarded me with your love and support as a gift. You and Wilm took me in to your home and you took a young girl and helped her grow in to a women. You taught me how to cook, clean, sew, crochet, ceramics, and any other creative ability you possessed. You always encouraged and told me there was nothing I couldn’t do. You were a Godmother to Jamie and she still wraps up in the quilts you gave her. When you look down on earth and you see all the people still carrying on the things you taught us God will tell you Mabel Irene Todd that was a job well done and look at all the lives you touched. My Love Always – Cheryl

    My thoughts and prayers are with the Todd family. “Now we know that if the eatthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in Heaven, not built by human hands.”–2 Corinthians 5:1

    I had the honor of visiting with Mabel and the Todd/McBride family every week. On the family trips she would stay with me and I was allowed to care for her and spend a lot of time with Mabel. It is the highest of compliments when people trust their most precious of possessions, of which Mabel was one. I only wish I could have known her when she spoke and got to know her more as a person, but I am thankful for the time that God allowed us to be friends. She was a great woman and has a great family that loved and cared for her until God called her home. She will be missed here on earth, but “whom the son sets free is free indeed”. See you on the other side “Maybelline”!

    I will miss you every day, as I still miss my mother. You taught me so much and you loved all of us. It seems that you taught almost all of us how to drive. I talked with Steve Bennett this week and he told me about learning how to drive with you. Nascar has nothing on you! You taught me how to cook, how to sew and how to DRIVE. We all went camping in Colonial Beach, you came to my softball games when no one else did. You were always there for me. I love you and always will.

  15. Kathy, Billy and Anastasia Santos on said:

    We would like to express our deepest condolences to all of you. Mable was truly blessed to have such a wonderful and supportive family. We pray for her eternal rest and have all of you in our prayers. Love, Kathy, Billy and Anastasia

    Ma, Words cannot express how much you have meant to me over the years. For numerous years you were my best friend. We talked everyday and you served as a sounding board for my life problems. I am most thankful that you encouraged God to be in my life. For years you took me to St. John’s Methodist where I learned about the Lord and the values that have served me well in my life. As a fellow insomniac, I have missed over the years having a person to call at 2 a.m. to talk to. I miss feeding the ducks with stale bread at Colonial Beach. I miss being able to cook in the kitchen with you while you listened to”All My Children” on your radio TV. I could go on and on about all the things I have and will miss about you. But one thing that will remain is the love and affection we had for each other. I look forward to seeing you again some day. I Love You.
