Vickie and Terri, 

It made us realize how much Todd meant to his friends when they renamed the Manga Library at the Anime Boston Convention 2010 to The Todd MacDonald Memorial Manga Library.  He was always kind of shy and I think he would be surprised and perhaps a little embarrassed by the attention, but deep down it would have made him feel good.  He loved working at those annual conventions so much.  He was there from the very first one in 2003.  His close friend Andrea ran that first one almost single-handedly, with a "little help from her friends".  Now it has grown so large that there's a complete Board of Directors and many, many staff members.  Todd referred to himself as a "lifer" when talking about Anime Boston!  None of us ever could have imagined that it would be only 7 short years, from 2003-2009.  He passed away only two weeks after the 2009 Con, which was held May 23rd, 24th and 25th of that year.  I remember that he asked my husband John (his father) to drive him that year, rather than take the train, as he usually did.  He wasn't feeling 100% and John was more than willing to drive him in town.
