I’ve had the privilege of meeting and chatting at length with Todd in Los Angeles before, and am devastated to hear this news. My heart goes out to him and his family. I am heartened that his life’s work will live long past his own and will have a profound effect on millions of others, even if they’re not directly aware of it.
