  • To Bob’s family: My mother, Viola Todd, married Bob’s father-in-law (Towers Todd) in March, 1957. Elizabeth, Bob’s wife, was the oldest child of Towers Todd, and she was my step-sister. Elizabeth and Bob were very close to my mother and to me over the years. When my mother was in Caroline Nursing Home, Denton, MD, from 1990 until her death in August, 1999, both of them (and also Eleanor) came to visit my mother regularly; they appreciated all the great care that my mother had given to Mr. Todd when he was an invalid following a stroke not long after they married in 1957.
    Over the past several years I have kept in touch with Bob with notes, cards, and calls to or from him. I spoke to him last after my husband died on April 21, 2019;
    I sent a birthday card for his 95th birthday, and was wondering why I had not heard from him recently. Today I decided to call and see how he was, and through the internet found out that he had passed away in June.
    You all have my deepest sympathy in the loss of Bob; he was a great person considering all the care he gave to Elizabeth and Eleanor. Bob was such a kind and patient person when he made sure that Elizabeth and Eleanor were able to visit my mother, especially when she was a resident of the nursing home.
    Our family feels as though WE have lost a family member with the loss of him.
