To Todd's entire family, so truly sorry. Feel so lucky to have had Todd in my life. I remember so vividly, being just twelve years old, and talking on the phone with him for hours about politics, philosophy, and life. In seventh grade we went to a movie, and he was the first boy who ever held my hand. Reconnecting with him as an adult was so wonderful. He had a profound impact on my life and I am forever grateful to him. Sending sincerest sympathies.

I am heartbroken to hear of Todd's passing. We worked together on some projects several years ago. One business trip I brought my mom. We met for dinner and she just fell in love with him. Wishing you peace and healing.

Mr and Mrs Harraka, TJ, Beth and Jill, My family and I send our deepest condolences to you for the tragic loss of your handsome son and brother. Growing up in your neighborhood, I had the pleasure of spending time at your house and always enjoyed Todd's gregarious personality and smile. He loved to talk to people and find out about their lives. I know my dad has enjoyed conversations recently with Todd in the neighborhood and that my Aunt Maryann also loved him. A bright light has gone out way too early. My heart is breaking for all of you. May God get you through this very difficult time.

What can I say, Todd always had a smile on his face and gave the best hugs. We grew up together as our moms were sisters. Always gregarious, ready for camping, sailing, fishing and riding his beloved motorcycle. His intellect, kindness and passion for life was evident the minute you met him. A bright light has gone out too soon and he will be missed. My heart breaks for Tony, Nancy, TJ, Beth and Jill, I love you all!

Words cannot express the sorrow in my heart for the loss of your beloved son Todd. He was an amazing human being, his kindness, love of family and gentle Spirit was a true testament of the beautiful son you raised. He was loved by me as another son and a brother and best friend to my son Joseph and my daughters Nicole and Jennifer. Sending your family prayers for strength as you find your way through each day. He will be greatly missed.
