New Shooting Star in the Heavens Tonight

Todd touched so many of our hearts. He made us feel important and always good about ourselves. Yet because of this disease he could not often feel the love and care his family and friends offered. His depression became so intense that the disease often robbed him of the ability to work or function with his love ones. The illness only provided him with little or no feelings of being loved, isolated, and helpless. This type of depression stole his life and continues to steal other lives like Todd. We must Survive this Depression NOW and to this end our goal for these monies are to increase awareness, education funding, and provide direct services who suffer from depression and bipolar disorders.

Thoreau said “To affect the quality of the day is the highest of the arts”. Todd was a very accomplished in this art; he positively impacted everyone he came in contact with each day. Every brother and sister, niece and nephew, friend, and colleague felt they were his favorite! And they wanted to be his favorite because to be loved by Todd was good! That is the insidiousness of depression that someone so valued could feel so worthless. Depression is the worst thief; it robs you not only of your love of self but of the acceptance of the love of others.


Todd came into this world April 9, 1955 in Phoenix, AZ. He was raised in Marcus, Iowa and attended Ames High School in Ames,IA. He is a graduate of Mankato State University, Makato, MN. After college, he secured employment with North Central Airlines and after several merges with other airlines Delta Airlines became his employer. Some thirty years ago he met his lifelong domestic partner Ralph Tardugno. At the time of death, they lived in Palm Springs, California.

The illness and Heartbreaking Tragedy

Some twenty years ago, Todd started experiencing depression from time to time. This is NOT the type of depression we all experience from time to time. His depression would keep him from being the outgoing, friendly and loving person who was admired by so many. He would lock himself away from all his friends and family and suffer great pain of isolation and loneliness.He would often shake violently and become dis-functional.After many cries for help, treatments, hospitalizations, various and different medications, his illness turn to longer durations and more often. After the most recent hospitalization, Todd returned home and lost his battle with depression in a traffic accident. He was taken from us as a result of this disease on Friday, June 4, 2010.
WE must Survive this Depression Now, and help those who have chronic depression and bipolar disorder before it robs another life. Please help DBSA with a donation so others may avoid a fate like Todd and so many others. Your pledge is deeply appreciated.
