A sad passing

Today I found out that the guy I did my first ever porn scene with, Todd Welch, died this weekend. He had been battling cancer for a while and it finally got the better of him.

I first met Todd when I was doing a solo video for Massive Studios. My first ever on-camera experience. I was so nervous and things were not looking up (if you get what I mean). Howard from Fabscout thought it would be a good idea if I tried it again with a scene partner. Enter Todd Welch.

I remember thinking HOT! He looked like Christian Slater. I love Christian Slater. Thankfully things started looking up after he showed up and the shoot went OK. You can check out the scene here if you're interested.

Todd lived here in Fort Lauderdale and was a bartender at a popular bar. I can't say I knew him that well, but I can say that the people who did know him really thought highly of him. In fact, there were a series of fund-raising events held to help pay for Todd's medical expenses and the response was great. Besides being cute as hell he always had a smile and some kind words whenever I saw him. It's sad to see someone so young pass.

I'm so sorry to hear about Todd's passing away. I always like to think that when someone passes away it is because they've accomplished what they were put here for and if they die young, it's because they don't have to prove to the almighty any more what a good soul they are. It almost aways seems like the nasty mean ones live the longest.

Take care and keep the chin up.

So sorry to hear this. At least he's no longer in pain. R.I.P.

Hey, thanks for asking how I'm doing on this. Like I said, I really can't claim that I was a good friend or anything to him. It's just really, really sad. My thoughs and prayers have gone out to his family and friends.
