    My sincerest sympathies and condolences. I was out of state and missed the service. Ted was an awesome guy and co-worker at the SAO. I especially liked when I would come back from court and he had lined up all these toy soldiers on my desk in military formations. Super smart gentleman and absolutely awesome lawyer. Awesome sense of humor. Will genuinely be missed.

    He was a true gentleman with fairness at the root of every action. He cared. I saw his struggle but he was a trooper. I am deeply saddened to hear of his transition. He was one of the best.

    I am terribly sorry to hear of "Teddy's" brain hemorrhage and passing. I grew up with him on the base at Dahlgren, where he was a favorite of many of us girls in the seventh and eighth grades. He was athletic, quiet, handsome, and kind. And, boy, did he know his history! I graduated with him from elementary and high school and although I thought of him often, never was in contact with him afterward. I know Mrs. Culhan or Judy may recall the group of girls vying for his attention by throwing rocks at his window or loudly playing outside at the Ryland's house next door on Hall Road. I know he was cherished and am sad of his loss, so young to us of the same age. My deepest sympathy.
