ForeverMissed

This memorial website was created so that the memory of our loved one, Todd Wesley Horner, would never fade away. It is our hope that as friends and family visit this memorial, they will post pictures, stories, shared jokes or any favorite memories of Todd.

Todd will be missed  by each of us as he was a proud father, a cherished husband, a loving son, and a wonderful friend to all. I know that as for me and many others, when he left, he took a large piece of my heart and soul. He was a special kind of person that would always be there if you needed him; never judging others. He was always thinking of ways to make my life easier, always wanting the best for the boys and me. He was a hard worker and enjoyed life.

As Emily Dickinson said, "Parting is all we know of heaven and all we need of hell."

We will love him forever and be glad that one day we will see him again in heaven.

 

"Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted"

Todd was a great man he did not judge other's, always saw the best in people, and wanted the best for his friends; he would help anyone do anything. He encouraged me to do my best. He was so happy that I became a nurse. I will miss him so much. I love you Todd

I went to kindergarten, middle, and graduated high school with Todd. He was the nicest Guy I know. I had the biggest crush on him. Knowing him, you knew no prejudice. Biggest heart, beautiful spirit. Never saw him angry. He will truly be missed. RIP, TODD.  R. Leach(Ronda Butler )

Todd was always a prangster growing up. He always had a smile on his face and I will never forget that laugh. We shared many laughs together, even when we were getting in trouble with the teachers. He never had enemies instead many friends that just enjoyed being around him. We will all miss him dearly but we will never forget him. He was one of a kind. Love You Todd!!! (April Dey)

How my heart broke when I heard of Todd's passing. He was with my brother Charlie Brown so much growing up he was like another little brother to me. I will never forget that mischievious grin of his. He was such a funny, talented, and truly good person - I will always remember him and that electric smile! Rest in peace Todd...till we meet again. Donna (Pebbles) Brown Smith

When "the Brown boys" were in for a visit in the summers, Todd Wesley was always around. Janet and Jennifer spent many summers playing with them at the river, and May and Curtis were always kind enough to share their river home with all of us! He was such a handsome fellow and very kind and gentle. I am so sorry for your loss.

I Miss My FriEND

Shared by Penny Kennedy on November 27, 2018

I miss Todd so very much this time of year and not a day goes by when he doesn't cross my mind.  I get so mad at him...b/c...so many people loved him and would have helped him!  Ironically enough my brother in law (Randy W. Baxter) had rode his H-D to Albemarle to check on Todd and was knocking on his door at approximately the same time of his death.  Randy, had felt inclined to go because Todd had went by to see him and called him the day before to confide in Randy and Randy knew he didn't sound like his usual self and had a gut-feeling to go check on him. Todd was so strong mentally and physically and had overcame so many obstacles and barriers.  He confided and cried to me a lot about events that had transpired in his life and like most of us didn't have a traditional family life.  However, he rose above it all and put his self through college and earned his degree.  He was a very determined individual when he set his mind on something...like loving me.  When I saw him for the first time & our eyes met...there was this mesmerizing attraction...i guess could be described by the lyrics of a song..." &, i want to sleep with you in the dessert tonight with a billion stars all around,"...or...another song..."the first time i ever saw you...you had a smile that would light up the room and those far away eyes that first drew me in...well, could you just see right through me then & I don't care who's wrong or who's right or if it's too late to stay up all night."  I saw right through his beautiful brown eyes and right into his beautiful heart & I loved what i saw...inside and out.  He was so loving and genuinely good-hearted.  He wanted to take care of me and protect me.  Even after we broke up, he was constantly checking on me & if he heard something about me that worried him...I'd be getting a phone call or a knock on my door to be informed of his concerns.  He was my soulmate & part of me died with him.  I catch myself crying often (like I am now)  when he pops in my mind & he stays on it a lot (the last cd he made me had the song "You were always on my mind," by:  Willie Nelson on it) like all my other friends and family (Laurie Martindale & Sherry Greene Horner) who all made my life and this world a happier and better place.  We are going to the sweet by and by but we are in the bitter now and now.  I am so grateful to have known and loved them all.  Todd was my very first boyfriend and endless love and of all the times I was mad at him especially one Farmer's Day when he was dancing with other girls...I could slap him then...but...I can't now...but...if I could get my hands on him...lol...I would hug him and apologize for all the arguments we had over nothing in the big scope of things.  One of my best friends told me one time...there are probably more people that love each other that are not together than there are people who love each other and are together.  I thought how sad and true.  I miss my Christmas card he never neglected to mail me and him...I just miss him.  I loved you Todd and still do.

Todd was the most beautiful baby I had ever laid eyes on .He had the most beautiful black hair that had a shine you could see yourself in his eyes had sparkle that could that made you smile lift your spirit when you needed it. Todd liked to play all the time As a infant he would set for long periods of time playing with his little feet and twirling his fingers through his curly black hair while he watched his favorite cartons. Todd was the baby you did not want to leave when it was time for him to go home and you could hardly Waite for him to come back . I only knew as a baby but those memories with him will always be in my heart .when I was informed of Todd's passing my memories of him as a baby raced through my mind and my heart sank to my feet. Todd when I get to heaven I will know you by the smile you wear on your face and those and the sparkle in those big brown eyes. For ever in my heart you aunt Ellen kennedy rogers
