My name is abbigail hightower. Todd was one of my favorite people. He was a gentleman, kind, funny, and knew what good music was. The tuesday before his passing, we were in 7th period at school listening to music. I'm not someone who looks very southern, but i have family roots. I was playing john denver and realized i didnt plug my earphones in. He was sitting a few rows in front of me to my left singing along and laughing at me for having my music out loud in class. He had the prettiest hair on this entire planet. He was one of the few guys who could pull off wearing a mullett. He wore hats to shape the top. He would take his hat off to shake his hair if it got stuck underneath. During the pledge of allegiance, he would stand with one arm behind, with his hat in his hand. He had his right hand over his heart. No matter who he supported, what he believed in, most everyone loved him and i hope he knows that. Todd was such a special kid. He mad a mistake that accidentally took his own life. So please be careful with your choices and watch where you step, always wear seatbelts, be protected. Take precautions on everything because you never know who you may hurt if you aren't here anymore. Todd i am so sorry this happened to you. I would take your place if i could. You are forever in my heart and mind and i will never forget you. I promise to cherish all of the moments we had together and to do my best on everything i live to do. You make me a better person everyday and i hope you are having a blast with your family and everyone else. Say hi to my family for me and tell them i said hello and see them soon oneday. I hope your dancing in the sky on gods right side. Rest easy Todd ❤❤❤😇
