We are so very saddened by the loss of Ted. He was a wonderful man who had a smile and a hug for anyone. Whenever we met he would ask how we were and hug me. He was delighted to find that Dad was in the hospital bed next to him in August. We would always walk in his room and ask how he was and even when he was very sick … he would say I’m not too bad … what about you guys. He always said hi sweetie and asked after Jacob and Jacob thought the world of Ted. May you find peace within your memories. His body is gone, but his soul will live forevermore in his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. If there is anything we can do for you Gladys just give us a call.
Gladys and family, so sorry to hear of the loss of Ted, he was a wonderful man and will be missed by everyone who new him. My prayers and thoughts are with you Gladys and your family at this sad and diffucult time.
