Todd's Message:     "I AM WITH YOU!  I AM WITH YOU!"

Our Dance


Don't Cry Mama

Written on the one year anniversary of Todd's death

It was a cold winter’s day,

Barely but a year ago,

When the Lord looked down from above,

And decided it was time for me to go.

And although I left you quickly,

Without so much as a 'goodbye,'

And I know your heart is broken,

But Mama please don’t cry.

You know I loved this life of ours,

And lived to make you smile,

And I did it all with such a flare,

Of wit and charm and style.

And Mama I know you miss me,

And long to hold me tight,

Cause I see your tears from heaven, Sometimes long into the night.

But today is not forever,

And tomorrow will work out fine,

Cause I’m waiting to race you once again,

On that old white App of mine.

And even though you can’t see me,

Mama, I’ve never left your side,

And you know I'll always be your boy,

No matter where it is I ride.

And now my chores have changed a bit,

I’m just cowboyin' in the sky,

So think of me and laugh a little,

But Mama please don’t cry.

Thank you Heavenly Father for sending Todd to me on July 25, 1980.  I don’t know why you needed him back so soon but trust you will look after him while we are apart.  And I ask you to give him this big hug from me so that he might know how much I miss him and how proud I will always be that he picked me to be his Mom. For once he was my dreamer…and now he’s the keeper of my dreams.
