    For some reason I was thinking of Devora today and decided to google your name and Todd’s obituary comes up saying he passed this month. I am Christopher Buchanan’s mom and knew Todd from the time he and Chris were little boys until I tragically lost him at his age of 26. Those two were on the phone talking to each other every day. I treasure the memories of those two munchkins going to school as no more then babies. I now live in Mechanicsville and plan on going to the cemetery in Newport News tomorrow to put flowers on Christopher’s grave as it is his birthday. My heart is heavy reading of Todd’s passing. I send my prayers to all the family
