    Even though I wasn’t around Todd that much when I lived with his dad 40 years ago, Todd must’ve been nine or 10 and I remember his dad cooking him something to eat, and always cutting the crust off the bread. It seemed like he was a lot younger then I was but he was only 10 years younger than me. My name is Marcus Avis . I live in Michigan and Lee or Clide as most called him was always one of my favorit uncles. I don’t know why, but when I heard about Todd, I was saddened more than what I thought he was always nice and pleasant be around when he come up to his dad’s house when I was there.
