To all of your family. I just now saw the obituary and will not be able to attend Service and I do wish I could. I remember playing with all of you as children I remember your mother and dad‘s home and I’m so sorry that we’ve lost touch with each other. Mom is there in heaven and I know she and Ted along with your parents have met up. And we have the privilege of knowing that one day we will all meet again. God bless you all

You will be greatly missed Mr. Ted. Thank you for being such a kind and loving husband to my mother for the last 20 years. You took care of her, doted on her and always spoiled her. I love you because of who you were to me but I love you even more for how much you loved my mom.
