    I will always remember that smile. I remember meeting him at Sean and Deb's house and thought what a fun guy! He always was smiling! It was fun to trade teaching stories with him; he never had a negative thing to say. I loved seeing his pictures when he and Tonyea worked at Heinz Field....again, always smiling. Heaven must have needed this angel. Todd, you will be missed.
