As you comprehend this profound loss, let yourself cry knowing each tear is a note of love rising to the heavens - Author Unknown. I saw this saying and really found it fitting so I wanted to share with you. I always enjoyed working with Ted and I'm sorry for your loss but he is now in heaven with his beloved wife.

His strength, endurance, integrity, dignity and goodness set a standard few could match. I will temper my sadness with long ago memories of living in my aunt and uncle's home, with cousins, cats and dogs. And one indelible memory of a dog in a truck that demonstrated both Uncle Ted's vocabulary when furious and his swift skills at repairing a garage wall. An amazing guy. Love, cousin Lissa
