Too Soon

Dear Todd, You were a child of 4, maybe 6, and your Mom visited my sister. You hopped onto my lap. You were talking and bright; I remember your energy and blue eyes. Never saw you again but had news from Marge that you graduated college and had a career @stratfordfestival. Now, you have left us with good memories and questions. You'll run into my sister, I'm sure; tell her how much she is missed and know that you left a lasting impression of pure goodness and humanity on a young kid.
