Wow! What can I say about my friend, Todd Isaac? He was the smartest boy in our school (C.S.44). He used to get on my nerves how smart he was. When it came time to take test, I would say, "Todd, what is the answer to..." Sometimes he would tell me, sometimes he wouldn't. That's just how he was. I miss you dearly. I know you and Mrs. Warner, our 6th grade teacher, are having a ball in heaven. Love you, duck lips!

ODE (pronounced owed) to Todd... My accidental mentor

The fall of 94, ah yes, sophomore year at Quinsig, my first year living away from my folks home in a seemingly busy complex up around the corner from Holy Cross. I forget exactly who was helping me at the time, maybe Bri and Pete, we were unloading my gear, carrying it up to my first of many homes away from home. Pete told me of a "kid" who would be staying with us for a little while, I forget the reason, if there were any, why this "kid" was sticking around the "Wu" before he headed down to New York City.

I remember opening the door to my new home and there on the couch to my right with his blanket Linus, half asleep, still more awake than most, probably with a game on was Todd. The specifics slip my mind, what I do remember is much more important to me. At the time I had no idea or appreciation of the impact he would have on my mind. At nineteen years of age, I can't think of a better person to have met, and I know how many great people that I have met. For lack of a better comparison, I compare our time together sort of like "Road to Perdition," only because of a lack of better comparison sort of way. For two or three months, I forget how long now, maybe less, maybe more, Todd let me hang around with him. We were living together, but he didn't have to let me hang around with him. It's the little things, shaking up the detergent in the laundry machine, layering it, because the machine didn't do the job you thought it did, cooking good food on a limited budget, reading the right books, listening to great music, watching the good movies, and the big things. The BIG THINGS... Todd's sense of humor, his sense of kindness, his sense of understanding, his remembrance of the past and his quest for the future. I'm not sure if Todd knew what he was doing with me, if he was teaching me deliberately or if it was accidently. I am certain that Todd is real, still alive, more than most. Todd took me out to all his old stomping grounds, introduced me to his endless stream of friends, worked out with me, and was just himself. I remember dropping Todd off when he left for the big city. I don't remember him having much, maybe some milk crates full of CDs, a few suits maybe from that clothes store he was working at before he left town. If I remember correctly there were three of those guys sharing a pad about half the size of the place Todd was moving from. I guess that's sports in the big city. We parted ways. I remember accidentally scratching Todd's head with my keys when we hugged good-bye. We kept in touch over the next few years. I still had a lot of growing up to do--still do. We played phone tag for a while. I made the "big trip" down in the early spring of '97. Todd couldn't stress enough that whatever I brought, bring a pair of dress shoes. I thought some new blue Nikes would pass. My guess is that Todd wasn't too surprised. Always teaching, Todd let me crash at his new pad for a few nights. At least ten times the size of the place I dropped Todd off at only three years earlier. Still introducing me to his friends, taking me to his work, the docks, the life. Todd showed me the picture of him posing with the Heisman. I left the city with a new t-shirt from the Z-bar, a business card from a local establishment, and some more memories. Everybody dies, but not everybody really lives. Todd, you are more alive now than most, not a day has gone by since we first met that I don't think about you and what you are up to. If my memory ever deprives me of anything, I hope it is not of you. PEACE, my brother, from another mother.

I miss you dearly, your smile, braveness, and heart. I remember the old times when you carried me on your shoulders and I felt like I was on top of the world. Now you are on top of the world. I know you are looking down on me and watching over me. I was just with our brother Odell Isaac Jr. a month and half ago. When we separated and I sat down, I thought about you because I knew someone was missing. You might not be here physically, but I know you are spiritually. I love you and miss you dearly.

Your li'l brother,
Melvin A Isaac

I went to elementary school with Todd and we grew up in the same Bronx neighborhood. Todd was the smartest (genius in my eyes) boy in the class. I considered him my competition in Mrs. Warner's class (our 6th grade teacher) where he graduated Valadictorian and I Solutatorian. Todd, you were always making me laugh and always had a sweet demeanor and even at that young age carried yourself with such dignity. Todd, even though I hadn't seen you in years before 9/11, when I heard that you were gone it hit me hard. You are truly missed. I wish I could have laughed with you about old times but now I just pray that we will meet again in eternity. Miss You

I knew Todd well and loved him.  He always made me smile and often outright double over with laughter.  I will remember him always for being the one who helped me to know how amazing it is to love another person freely.

I really did not know Todd that well, but I knew his mother, very well, because his mother and my mother were good friends, as a matter of fact they both came from the same home town of Salisbury, N.C.. My mother and his mother went to school together, his aunt was married to one of my cousins.  And when I was younger I once remebered going to visit them in the Bronx, before his mother moved back to North Carolina.  They were both sweet people and my mother and our family truly miss them both.  I often listen to the tributes to the people of the world Trade Center and listen to hear his name if mentioned, because I know he is truely missed. Because they were truely loved!!!

Hi Todd, whenever I walk by your name in the Union Square subway memorial Todd I think of you.  You lived in my dorm and were always smiling...
