My sincerest condolences to the Todd family. Bill Todd was my uncle who never knew me. My father was Delbert Burkley Todd. From reading the guest book it appears I missed out on knowing a very fine man.

I, and his neighborhood, will surely miss Mr. Todd. Bill always kept an eye out for my mom and other neighbors. Every time I would drop by, he'd be working on a project for someone. He would always talk about his latest project with great joy. Honestly, he had more get up and go than a lot of men 40 years younger. Goodbye Bill, it was a pleasure to know you. I'll see you on the other side.
