  1. A true & dear friend of 20 years. Proud to call him my friend, honored he called me his. After not seeing each other for months, we’d pick up right where we left off. Could talk about anything, knew we could always lean on each other, although we never had to. Precious adventures we endeared. Shared the highest respects for one another. His welcoming embrace, when I arrive at Heavens Gate, will finally comfort this void now felt.

  2. My heart goes out to Todds whole family, but especially to my old friend, Gay Ballard. There are no words to express the depth of loss of a child. Please know that I am thinking of you.

  3. From the first time I saw Todd he was such a cute and sweet boy. He always had a hug and a smile for you. He grew up into a kind and loving man, the only change was the hugs and smiles got bigger…..such a terrible loss, especially for Cason and Gay.

    Dear Gay, my aunt and my friend. I know Todd was your world, there are no words to give you comfort, you two had such a tight bond and one of the most amazing relationships, it was so obvious to all, when you guys would see each other your eyes would light up. My heart aches for you and I’m so very sorry you are having to go through this.. love you always!!

    RIP Todd
