My heart goes out to all my friends at Chip, Baldwin, and of course Gang Green. Please know I am thinking about each of you tonight as I light a candle. Todd lived a good life and gave all he had to his passion, remember that along with all the great memories we all share.

Blues,

Cheryl

Re: [skydive_n8] Todd J. [In reply to] Can't Post

who has a great pic of Todd they can post? There are alot of people out there who won't remember him by name, because he was such a quiet presence on the dz. But when it comes down to it, who could forget that smile? Surely somebody has a terrific pic to post? Gonna think about you and miss you for a long time Todd. Blue skies to you.

I don't know what to say. Todd was a great guy. It's rare that you meet someone in this sport with the level of sustained enthusiasm that Todd had for the sport. What a shock your going to be missed my friend. I raise my glass to a great skydiver.

Blue skies forever,

DAUnsure

Re: [skydive_n8] Todd J. [In reply to] Can't Post

My best memory of Todd's last day was watchting him pack up one of our newer jumpers big slipperies just to do something nice, and asking me who's rig it was and saying it was a bear to pack. Doing a solid for a stranger when that person wasn't watching; that's just plain kind, decent and cool. J

Re: [skydive_n8] Todd J. [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm still in shock so this will be short, but here is a picture of Todd as requested.

It portrays is the cheesy grin he always had after landing, regardless of what kind of jump and regardless of how the jump went.

I will forever love him.

Hey Brother... I haven't seen you since our last jump in Rantoul. That photo of our jump still hangs on my wall. Yeah, been a few years, but now I miss you terribly. Unsure

Blue Skies, Todd, may we meet again in that dropzone in the sky....

Re: [diverdriver] Todd J. [In reply to] Can't Post

I can't believe it. Every year at Quicy, then Rantoul, Todd was the constant bigger than life presence in the organizer tents. He was the kind of guy you could see only at a boogies each year, but it was like you knew him your whole life. An easy friend. He was my image of what an athlete in this sport could aspire to, ever since I started out. Rest in peace brother. Blue skies.

Re: [ckoehler] Todd J. [In reply to] Can't Post

I met Todd Thursday. So did my son. Todd took my son aside and spent 20-30 minutes discussing turns and other things associated with a D jump. I also watched him coach a couple of A jumpers. Note: he wasn't jumping with these guys (or us); he was just helping and imparting his great knowledge and experience to us newbies. Wow. What a guy.

Blue Skies Todd. Thanks for entering our lives...
