Sonia Todd
Oct, 14, 2012
My name is Sonia Todd and I died of cancer at the age of 38. I decided to write my own obituary because they are usually written in a couple of different ways that I just don't care for. Either, family or friends gather together, and list every minor accomplishment from cradle to grave in a timeline format, or they try and create one poetic last stanza about someone's life that is so glowing one would think the deceased had been the living embodiment of a deity.
I don't like the timeline format because, let's face it, I never really accomplished anything of note. Other than giving birth to my two wonderful, lovable, witty and amazing sons (James and Jason), marrying my gracious, understanding and precious husband (Brian), and accepting the Lord Jesus Christ as my personal savior—I have done very little. None of which requires obit space that I have to shell out money for.
I also didn't want a bunch of my friends sitting around writing a glowing report of me which we all know would be filled with fish tales, half-truths, impossible scenarios, and out-right-honest-to-goodness-lies. I just don't like to put people in that kind of situation.
The truth, or my version of it, is this: I just tried to do the best I could. Sometimes I succeeded, most of the time I failed, but I tried. For all of my crazy comments, jokes, and complaints, I really did love people. The only thing that separates me from anyone else is the type of sin each of us participated in. I didn't always do the right thing or say the right thing and when you come to the end of your life those are the things you really regret, the small simple things that hurt other people.
My life was not perfect and I encountered many, many bumps in the road. I would totally scrap the years of my life from age 16 to 20 . . . ok, maybe 14 to 22. I think that would eradicate most of my fashion disasters and hair missteps from the 80's. But mostly, I enjoyed life. Some parts of it were harder than others but I learned something from every bad situation and I couldn't do any more than that.
Besides there are some benefits to dying youngish, for example, I still owe on my student loans and the jokes on them cuz I'm not paying them. Plus, I am no longer afraid of serial killers, telemarketers, or the IRS. I don't have to worry about wrinkles or the ozone layer and/or hide from the news during election season.
Some folks told me that writing my own obituary was morbid, but I think it is great because I get a chance to say thank you to all the people who helped me along the way. Those that loved me, assisted me, cared for me, laughed with me, and taught me things so that I could have a wonderful, happy life. I was blessed beyond measure by knowing all of you. That is what made my life worthwhile.
If you think of me, and would like to do something in honor of my memory do this:
-Volunteer at a school, church, or library
-Write a letter to someone and tell them how they have had a positive impact on your life
-If you smoke - quit
-If you drink and drive—stop
-Turn off the electronics and take a kid out for ice cream and talk to them about their hopes and dreams
-Forgive someone who doesn't deserve it
-Stop at all lemonade-stands run by kids and brag about their product
-Make someone smile today if it is in your power to do so
*Services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 20th at Trinity Baptist Church, 711 Fairview Drive, Moscow, with a potluck reception following, everyone is welcome to attend.
In lieu of flowers a memorial fund has been set up at the Blaine Street Branch of the US Bank in Moscow. Gifts can be made out to the Todd Boys Educational Fund.

THIS WAS A MOST MARVELOUS WAY TO CONCLUDE A HAPPY LIFE ... HAVE RECOMMENDED TO OTHERS FOR YEARS TO DO SOMETHING SIMILAR AS MOST OBITUARIES ARE NOT WORTHY AND DO NOT TELL WHAT A PERSON WAS REALLY LIKE ... THIS YOUNG LADY CERTAINLY DID IT RIGHT ... YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS MUST BE PROUD AND HAPPY TO HAVE KNOWN SUCH A REMARKABLE LADY.

It's been 1 year now since I cut Sonia's obituary out of the paper. I saved it & re-read it. As so many have posted on this guest book, she was so remarkable that I too regret I never knew her in life. I, however, do feel I knew her through her legacy that she left behind by her words. I have tried to take her advice & am so grateful to have had the opportunity to learn from such a wise soul.

When I think of you, I remember the fun times we had together in while in college. You were a ray of sunshine in my day, always bringing a smile to my face. I am so blessed to have known you, and able to call you my friend. I love you, Sonia. Don't forget Y2K!! :)

Sonia. I know that you are with God now and I admire your writing of your own obit. If only all of us could be as honest about ourselves and what we anticipate that others would say at our passing, this would open our eyes to the real person that has gone home. God Bless your family for I know you are always in their hearts and have left them wonderful memories.

Gone Too Soon
Like a comet
Blazing 'cross the evening sky
Gone too soon

Like a rainbow
Fading in the twinkling of an eye
Gone too soon

Shiny and sparkly
And splendidly bright
Here one day
Gone one night
Like the loss of sunlight
On a cloudy afternoon
Gone too soon

Like a castle
Built upon a sandy beach
Gone too soon

Like a perfect flower
That is just beyond your reach
Gone too soon
Born to amuse, to inspire, to delight
Here one day
Gone one night

Like a sunset
Dying with the rising of the moon
Gone too soon
Gone too soon

Sonia, thank you for sharing your self-written obit with all the world. I wish you knew how much it has touched so many lives. I too have accepted Jesus as my Lord and Saviour and I know its the most important decision I've ever made. You sound like a wonderful woman, a wonderful wife, mother and friend.

Mrs. Todd, I wish I could have met you ! What you wrote was very touching and gave me the courage to write my own Obit. I am also going to write personal letters to my Wife Children and Grand Children to let them know how much they mean to me. May God bless you and your family .And as you walk with God in heaven please remember that you did have an impact on some of us on earth.May God Love You and Keep You MICHAEL POOLE

Sonia was a beautiful person, inside as well as outside! She LIVED while she was alive, an example in courage and an inspiration to all those of us who were blessed to know her. God Bless the family.
Lynne Crawford
October 21, 2012
Sonia, I don't know you either, but your message makes so much sense. And while you think you "didn't do much" other than have kids and accept Jesus into your life, I think by those things alone, you did a lot! God doesn't judge us by how famous we were, or what earthly things we accomplished. He looks at how we treated each other, and in His Name did what we thought was right. God bless you Sonia, and please watch over the rest of us who are still dealing with our earthly troubles!

Sonia, what a beautiful person you are. You have not died, you are still very much alive with God and your Savior, Jesus Christ. We who have read this Obit you wrote have learned a wonderful lesson from you. To show respect and understanting to others. I will never forget this. You did everything you were sent here for. You did not fail anyone or yourself. I am so proud of you. You are a special Angel now and forever.

I did not know you or your family. Im sure in your life you touched many in a positive way. In history artists become famous after passing in their younger years. What you have written has gone viral on facebook. It shines as the truth to so many. It is an example I will follow.

May you all know she has touched me and others in Boise. I truly hope after your grief passes you celebrate her life as best you can. God Bless.

It's funny how you say that you did not do anything special to warrant the long tributes of the traditional obituary - how wrong you are - you are indeed a very special soul that has touched the lives of many more than you will ever know. We are all like you Sonia - we want to do the right thing but have had times in our lives that we may not be very proud of. I thank you for having the courage to face your struggle with dignity and grace. I pray that God help your family to find the strength to go on each day without you. But most of all, dear Sonia, I thank you for reminding all of us that it is not too late, that we can all reach out to someone and make a difference in their, as well as our own lives. Fly now with the angels as you were meant to.

My heart rejoices for you. You made the most important decision of your life when you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.

To the family I am sorry for your loss. I did not know Sonia but after reading her self written obituary I wish I had known her. I know that it hurts and I am truly sorry. At Psalm 56:8 David pleaded to God: "Do put my tears in your skin bottle. Are they not in your book? Like David I know that God is aware of your pain and what you are going through emotionally. He will give you what you need to live each day without Sonia.

Sonia is a blessing to all of us! We should take her generous message of love, kindness, and forgiveness and use that message to make the world a better place. If only more people chose to live so well, we could have heaven on earth! Blessings to the husband, sons, family and friends of this magnificient child of God! May your hearts take comfort in knowing that she will live in heaven forever with our Lord, and Christ our Savior, the angels, of which she is one.

I never had the opportunity to know Sonia but wish I had. She seems like the kind of person I would have wanted for a best friend.

Sonia, I would have liked to have been your friend, and in spirit we are now. I too, laughed and cried when I read her obit. Everytime I read a long, long obit about someone who has every accomplishment, prize and position they held listed, I feel so inadequate. But I also know the true neasure of a person is their soul, not the number of degrees and honors. I think most of never realize how much we impact others in our daily life for good, or bad.Thank you Sonia, for impacting MY life with your generous and kind spirit. Godspeed friend!

To Those I Love
&
Those Who Love Me

When I am gone, release me, let me go
I have so many things to see and do
You mustn't tie yourself to me with tears
Be happy that we had so many years.
I gave you my love, you can only guess
How much you gave to me in happiness
I thank you for the love you each have shown
But now it's time I travelled on alone.
So grieve a while for me if grieve you must
Then let your grief be comforted by trust
It's only for a while that we must part
So bless the memories within your heart.
I won't be far away, for life goes on
So if you need me, call me and I will come
Though you can't see me or touch me I'll be near
All of my love around you soft and clear.
And then, when you must come this way alone
I'll greet you with a smile and say
"Welcome Home"

My thoughts and prayers to the family of Sonia. What a beautiful obituary she wrote. She was so honest and very wise for she knew what was important in life. To love others and never give up. I look forward to meeting her someday in Heaven.
Debbie Hunsberger
October 20, 2012
I was sincerely touched by Mrs. Todd's honest and brave remarks, and wish that her life could have been very long and filled to overflowing with the fruit of Christ. Still, concerning others, it makes me sad that some live productive lives and then get either no obit, or a few sentences, and then no one signs their guest book. I see it all the time. I suppose there is no "right way" to go about it. Best wishes to her family.
Russ Aubrey
October 20, 2012
I printed your obituary and put it on my cork board. It is not a "Christmas Past" statement as much as a "Christmas Future" premonition. It speaks to the fact that we can all change...for the better. You did and are continuing to change others...for the better. God bless and keep you for your gift to your family and many others who have never known you other than through your obituary. The cost of paying for your own written legacy was money well spent. Thank you!
Richard
October 20, 2012
God bless Sonia's family at this time - He surely blessed them before by sharing this woman's life with them. I am moved and thankful for her reminder of what we all know...stop and be an active part of the little things in life that we usually don't take time for. Thank you Sonia, may God bless.

Todd Family,
What a woman you had that graced your life. She was truly an inspiration, and she got it right. She was strong and from what I see did accomplish more than many of us do, in a longer lifetime. She achieved strength in her convictions, seemed to take no bs from anyone, adored the family she had and accepted the hand she was dealt by God, with grace and understanding. May God Bless you all and give you her strength through this difficult time
