I use to work with Todd at Orbitron. He made work fun. He always had a smile and I never saw a bad side of him. When we started camping at Huggy Bear we were happy that Todd and Karen were our neighbors. The times we got to sit around the campfire though they were few ( Todd was a worker) will always be treasured. I just found out about Todd's illness and my heart goes out to Karen and his family. Prayers to all!
