Over the last few days, we've been hearing from Todd Sorensen's family. They were aware of the affection Todd had for all of you, but probably didn't know the extent to which he affected his "fake friends". They've learned that the last few days, reading your comments on this post. Todd's wishes were this: no funeral, no memorial, not even an obituary in the paper or anywhere else.
None of you should be surprised by that.
His response to the outpouring of love, respect, prayers and thanks would surely be: Right back at ya.
That's what Tom Faulkner, a friend of the Sorensen family said, and it sounds just like HTT.
And he also said this: if we want to do something he'd approve of? Throw him a wake.
Now we're talking. More to follow in the coming months. For now? From Todd's daughter...
I knew he loved hockey, but I didn't realize how much people respected him and his knowledge.
Please let your bloggers know how much the family appreciates everything they wrote.

About Abel to Yzerman
Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
