Happy birthday. Wish you could celebrate all of the weddings, births and engagements. We all miss you so much. I read this the other day "sometimes memories come out of my eyes and run down my cheeks". So many memories!, Love you so much. Your momma.

Each day since learning about Todd's passing away less than two weeks ago, more things come to mind almost everyday. Yesterday, I remembered more of my trip to visit his home about 90 miles from where I grew up. He showed me his high school and then took me on to the campus of the university there to give me a tour. I saw the downtown area and his home and met his mom and I think his brother all back in the mid 1970's. I remembered well his encouragement and how much I valued his friendship. I miss you now over 25 years since last seeing you. (oops .... 35 years ago ....I am terrible at math!)

Christmas Eve December 24, 2013 and it has been 3 and one half years since you left us. I think of you often, the conversations we had together. Our friendship was precious and you helped me in many ways. I still miss you and I suspect I always will. Merry Christmas dear Todd.

Miss you so much--and especially at this season. Dreamed about you last night. It involved Ames and Bob Catus and how much you two looked alike. It was a fun dream. There so many visiting this site. Shows how much you were loved and missed.

I found this website about 10 days ago. It is with a sense of sadness that I learned of Todd's passing away. We were friends during the time I attended the same university 1974-76. I then went on to teach the next year but came back to visit friends at the university (including Todd) 2 or 3 times during that school year. One time I drove down and visited Todd at his home and met some of his family (including his mother). Another time I saw him at a family member's home north of Minneapolis sometime during those years. I last saw Todd when he visited me at my grad school in Chicago in April of 1978. He is a very special friend and I deeply miss him now that he is heaven. I never forgot him and thought of him often.

My Door Todd.....It is almost Christmas Day, and you can see how many people STILL miss you so much.    No matter how many times I look at your pictures, I miss you more each time.    The pain does not get any easier at all with all the time that has gone by so far.   Will be thinking of you all during the holidays and forever.  lucy-jean

It's been three years since you left us. There is not a day that I don't think of you. I just had a wonderful opportunity to be with all of your siblings. You would be so delighted with the newest babies and they with you. I still hear your voice and your wonderful laugh. R.I.P., beloved son.

Posted by Marina JONES on April 9, 2013
Happy Birthday, Miss you. Think of you all time. You would not believe how the Sand family is growing. You can look down and see the new little nieces and nephews arriving. You loved being an Uncle. You are in my heart especially today. Love, Grace aka Marina

Hi Todd, I know it is the day after Christmas, and sorry I did not write yesterday. But you know ,there is never a day that goes by that you re in my heart and thoughts. I sure miss you. In remember one Christmas day, we flew and in the upperdeck on the 747-400, we secretly exchanged gifts. Did not want to include anyone else in our special moment. I could use you here right now to vent.

Todd, Just spent 3 days with your Mom "DaisyMom" I call her. Had a great time. She always welcomes Harrison,and he loves her too. We always talk about "you". You would love how much we bring up some of the silly things we both remember. I miss you, and never a day goes by I do not miss you. Love Marina. aka Grace

Dear Todd: I haven't seen you since high school, but think about you often. I remember laughing as hard as I've ever laughed in my life with you. Study hall--when we were separated (jr. high) because we couldn't stop egging each other on. You wouldn't turn around--when you did, you had notebook reinforcers all over your face and glasses. I love you dear Todd.

Seeing your picture still breaks my heart and puts tears in my eyes...I hope the you can f eel all the love we all hold in our hearts for you, our Angel, Todd...
Posted by Jean Boak on June 6, 2012
Oh man Door Todd, I guess you can tell how much everyone misses you and how much you are loved by now.   We all want you back with us, but God knows what he is doing.  He loves you more than all of us I guess.  I look at your pictures filtering through, and want to jump in every picture with you and hug you.   You are the best, and no one better to fly with and feel safe with.

Dearest Todd,

It is two years and seems like yesterday to me. I celebrated 2 years of sobriety today and I felt you celebrating with me this morning at my AA Meeting. You always understood me and cared. I miss you and look forward to seeing you again in Heaven.
Posted by Marina JONES on June 4, 2012
Hi Todd, It has been two years. I miss you everyday, and think of you. We just went by you area yesterday, to take Benjamin and Jen to see the Marilyn Monroe statue. You would love it. I am always at a loss of words(I know you can not fathom that of Grace), but there are so many times I wish we could do things we loved doing together. Love you..Will

"the first time his laughter unfurled its wings in the wind, we knew the world would never be the same"  It has been 731 days since you left us. I have thought about you on every one of them.  
 Goodbyes are the law of the earth
 Reunions are the law of heaven. I will love you forever.

I am reliving two years ago....if only I could change the pattern of events...I know that you are in peace now, but selfishly, I wish that you were still here with us to make US laugh! I love you, my dear brother! We all miss you so much!!!!

Hi, I still miss you. Guess that is N E V E R going to go away. I have dreamt about you the last two nights. Nothing crazy or something, but almost like you are still here. I am sure you know all the babies that have come into The Sands family. Your Mom is so proud to say there are like, so many Sand decendants. Love you "Will". Grace

I remember Todd from high school....a kind soul with a quick smile. I am sorry to learn of his passing. My heart aches for his family and friends that love him. I only knew Todd for a short while but know by the tributes left that he remained the sweet, gentle, kind person I remember so many years ago.
Posted by Phyllis Moorey on September 11, 2011
So, so many people still miss you--especially me. Marina is coming for a visit. She makes me feel close to you. Wish you could join us for some good laughs. I dream about you often. Such good dreams they are. I love you so dearly. Your momma.

My beloved son--How I wish I could tell you Happy Birthday.  I so clearly recall the day you were born.  It was Easter season and the weather was lovely.  You were this dear little bundle with definitely red hair.  You were an easy baby--no sleepless nights.  Little did we know then that your beautiful personality would touch so many lives all over the world.  You are surely not forgotten and your family and Ralph ache with missing you.  I remember so many excursions with you--your delightful smile and the way you said "Hey Mom"  There is an empty spot in many hearts--especially mine.  I was blessed to be your mother and I am looking forward to the time when I will join you, your dad and Joel in that Place where there is no pain and only love.   Mom

What WORDS can I say to you that even begin to tell you how much I and your siblings love you?  There is no 'ed' on that word.  We do and will always love you.  There are so many people expressing that love.  Did you EVER have any idea?  I believe God sent you here to show us what that word really means.  It is my great blessing to be your mother.

If there will be anything that I will need in Heaven, will you take me shopping?  No need for a wheelchair there!

NWA Retirement Get Together 10/2008

Shared by Donald Trisdale on June 17, 2010

Todd loved to party and have guest over at his and Ralph's beautiful home. Todd would never miss an opportunity to see his co-workers/friends.  He traveled from Palm Springs to Manhatten Beach to the  NWA LAX Retired Flight Attendant Party to wish us all the best even when he did not feel well. He loved to party and socialize. He always had such kind words for each of us. His stories and wit kept us laughing and smiling. Parties just won't be the same without you my dear friend.
