I met Todd through Dom when i was doing back up raps for Dom's songs. God It was crazy embarrasing to do this in front of Todd but he was always charming and so kind. later in Melbourne we ate pho and discussed making a documentary on his work with Start Taranaki which eventually became 'Lost Boys Of Taranaki' - that time we spent together making that was one of the best experiences of my life, i learnt to much and will forever be grateful to Todd for that gift. Such an Icon. Such a cool dude. ❤️

To Kerry, Mark and the extended family. Just a note to let you know you are all in my thoughts and prayers. Losing a child is such a hard road to travel, but you can be proud of the man he had become. Love and hugs to you all. Kia Kaha

Todd , so much comes to my mind when i think of you, Like the first time i met you , you were only 4 years old , a blond crew cut, and a stud in your ear. You traviled with Mum, Mark and big sister Kylie all the way to your Nan's place in a little town called Picola , it was Summer and you were all melting from the Austrailan heat. You were so shy at first , but it didn't take long for you to warm up to your Aussie family , and that family loved you more then words can ever express. your love of music was always in your sole, you were so proud showing Aunty Skin (Me) how you could rap dance to Phil Collins Sussudio. Little Mate i hold your name forever in my heart, and beautiful memories of you in my mind.. Now Todd , Nan (Joan) finally got to have you all to herself , as you know you were always her favorite , now dont give her to much shit... Untill we meet again Toddy, and i know we will. love Aunty Skin xxx

I trained with Todd for his corporate boxing fight. This scary looking, heavily tattooed guy surprised me by being pleasant, intelligent and considered. I watched Todd, with his brother by his side in his corner, have a convincing win in his fight. It was a pleasure to meet him. RIP Todd.

Todd. The momentary couple of years that you were in my life were some of my most treasured. I'll always hold close to me the amazing, bizarre family dynamic created by the most wonderful people in the little suburb of Pascoe Vale. I will never forget the time you drove with Tam all the way to Sunbury because I refused to get on the train with a stye on my eye. Or when you and AZ came to get me from the police station due to uh... my accidental vomiting in the street, and how you had to stop AZ from laughing at me in front of the cops. Mostly I'll never forget when I would witness your kindness from the corner of my eye, not meant for an audience, just a true testament to your nature. I'll also treasure the small things, like when we would be the only lazy people home and you'd knock on the caravan door for a ciggy.

Thank you for teaching me about an array of interesting things, for always being so kind and warm and sharing your talent with the world. I'm forever thankful to you for demonstrating to me that any human can be your family. That was the most important thing you taught me.

I know how you'd loved so much to meet Belle Rose and see Tamar as a mother. Witnessing that restores my faith in this complex world & I know somewhere you are watching them both and you are extremely proud. It was an honour to know you and an honour to learn from you. All my love to your family and everyone you held dear to you. I'll never forget you. Thank you for everything. Rest easy in paradise big brother.
