Penn State Football: A Heartfelt Request in Memory of My Husband
On January 8, 2014 my husband Terry Todd passed away at the age of 78.
Terry had attended 282 Penn State football games in a
row between 1990 and the end of 2012, and 426 football games overall since 1970. You can read his full obituary here.
Football was Terry's passion and in 2013 cancer stripped Terry of
that passion as well as his life.
For that reason I have asked that
memorial contributions in Terry's name be made to the Penn State chapter
of Uplifting Athletes. It's an annual PSU football team effort to raise money for kidney cancer
research, and it seems very fitting to support this charity.
Any donations in Terry's memory are
most appreciated, or you can choose a favorite athlete and support their
efforts in the upcoming 2014 Lift for Life.
As for me, I
will do my best to carry Terry's passion for Penn State football forward as we welcome Coach
James Franklin and look forward to yet another new beginning for Penn
State football this fall.
Thank you for your patience this year, I promise you that this blog will see new life in the months ahead.
