Blessings to all of the Walter B Todd family. I had the great pleasure of knowing him while he lived at Laurel Crest. He was a gentleman, I loved going into the main dining room each night and seeing him before I left each day. He would always give me a kiss on my cheek. My prayers are with all of you.

Our memories of Mr. Todd are from our times together at Laurel Crest - he was a quiet, faithful brother in our Bible Study class. He had the apprecaition of all of us.

May the presence of the Lord Jesus be your experience in fullness during these days of sorrow.

Walt and the Todd family, my sincere condolances. What a great and rewarding life he had serving his country, state and community with such devotion and distinction. Few can match his many accomplishments. I do recall being at The PiKA House when the Colonel was honored in 2008. And what an honor for us to be his Brothers.

Your dad was also remembered by one of his young lieutenants from Ft Benning who rose to the rank of Lieutenant General and led the Army ground forces in Operation Desert Storm...John
