My thoughts and prayers go out to Amanda, the boys and the whole McGovern family. I was fortunate enough to spend even a short time working with Todd, his spirit and will to live has left a memorable impression forever.

Dear Tom and Linda,
Please extend our deepest sympathies to Todd's wife Susie and the rest of the family. It has been a great sadness to learn of his passing. We will cherish our memories of happier times watching Todd grow up to become the wonderful adult he was.

I can still visualize the boys playing ball and street hockey in front of our houses on Chipmunk Court. It seems like that was an eternity ago.

Dear Amanda
We are so sorry to hear about Todd's death. We have known you for so long. It just seemed like he would always be around. We know that in our hearts and the hearts of many others. he will be.
In the eight years you were together, as husband and wife, you accomplished so much that strengthened, not only you two as a couple, but as an example for others, who are going through similar hardships. But most amazingly, you had the foresight to set a way in which William and Andrew will always be able to remember their father. They will be able to identify with SEAS IT as a legacy from him to them. The stories you will be able to tell of his strength; of continuing to exercise in hopes of helping him survive; his willingness to try any protocols that were available; and, of course, his love for you, which radiated from him to you, even if you were not physically together. These aspects of his life are amazing. Through the boys, Todd will live and through you they will remember and love.

I don't know what heroes are if they are not people like Todd and Amanda--and their families-- from the day of Todd's diagnosis. I plan to share this story of courage with my children when they are old enough to understand that even in the most overwhelming circumstances, hope and hard work can change outcomes. Our family sends condolences and love to Todd's family and his miracle sons.

My deepest sympathies go out to the McGovern family, his friends, old and new, and Todd's community. We were all so lucky to have had the honor of knowing such a great guy. May the fond memories we all have of "Gov Man" bring a smile to our face and may we crank the music when we hear a track from "Jock

I can still picture Gov chasing down impossible-to-get-to fly balls in center field, making it look easy with that huge grin on his face. Todd was an inspiration and leader from the moment I met him as a freshman baseball player at Colby until the last time I saw him, cheering me and the rest of the team on at a SeasIt run in Burlington, VT.

Rest in peace Gov. My deepest condolensces to Amanda, your boys, and the entire McGovern family.

Todd's courage and determination inspired all of us, and my son Carter McDonnell loved Todd and all that he stood for. All good thoughts and support to you and your boys Amanda. Love, Richard.
