Not sure what to say?

In honor of the late great Todd Christensen


I just wanted to say that I remember you as both a fan of yours as a player with the Raiders and for your work covering games as a color commentator. You will always be sadly missed by Raider Nation. God Speed.

Remember when we were young families in the El Segundo ward. We had some great times and a lot of laughs. Todd was always willing to help. He was there when our daughter married and when our son died. Thank you so much Todd and Kathy.

I wanted to say I was thinking of Kathy today and praying for her. When I saw her in the store the other day, I told her it gets easier after a year, because that is what others tell me and my mom, about my dad. Mom says it doesn't. However, a scar is beautiful in the tapestry of eternity and makes us better people for having lived through it. As compassionate, kind and wonderful as you already are, Heavenly Father loves you very much to allow for this.

Please accept my sincere condolences on the death of your dear love one. “And no resident will say: I am sick…” Isa 33:24. This is a promise God has made known in his word. Perhaps one day in the divine future you or I may see again those fallen from our lives due to a sickness or illness that led to an untimely death. Prayers go out to the surviving family and friends may the God of comfort continue to bless you and yours.

Our thoughts, prayers and fondest memories are with you. Todd was so kind and helpful always interested in the best good. Our deepest sympathy is there for you. You are dear always smiling, friendly and positive a sincere friend we love you.

My heart goes out to the Christensen family during this very difficult time. I didn't know Todd...but I am one of many in the Raider Nation that loved to watch him play. God speed to you all.

I had a social work class with Todd at BYU and remember him as very nice guy who contributed a great deal to the class
