Remembering Todd


Whether our lives and our deaths were for peace and a new hope or for nothing, we cannot say; it is you who must say this. We leave you our deaths, Give them their meaning. 

We were young, they say, we have died; remember us. 

--Archibald MacLeish


Todd's Memorial Tree on the campus of William and Mary near the Wren building and Presidents Office, as compared from 2011 to 2023. A living tree is such a great memorial to Todd at his Alma Mater. Imagine what it will look like in twenty years. 


During our April 22 trip to Virginia, one highlight was to watch Todd's nephew, Ethan, play baseball at Christopher Newport University on Senior Day. For the last two years of his college career Ethan wore # 10 in honor of his uncle. If you look closely, you will see Todd's name written out on his left wristband. CNU won the game and Ethan had a hit and ended the game with a fantastic double play in the field. Ethan was 9 years old when Todd was KIA. 


Mission BBQ in Newport News VA: After the game, the entire family went to Mission BBQ for a great dinner and the chance to meet the owner, Jane Dickey She had already posted Todd's photo on the Gold Star wall after meeting with Glenn earlier in the year. It was quite an afternoon and Mission BBQ is a restaurant that is unique in its support of the military to both eat and be patriotic. We were also surprised when a former Bruton High School football player who played with Todd in 2002 and now works at Mission BBQ joined us.

Invited to do so by FL State Senator, Debbie Mayfield, Jeanne's 21 oil paintings from Losing Todd: A Mother's Journey, was displayed in Tallahassee April 26 - 28. The paintings were seen by hundreds on the 3rd floor of the Rotunda of the Capitol. Jeanne and her artwork honoring Todd were recognized with a standing ovation from the Senate floor. It was a once in a lifetime experience and done while the Legislature was in full session as Memorial Day approached. 

Todd is remembered through the painting, 'Bugler" which is featured as the cover image to Senior Scene Magazine with an article. May, 2023
