    Katie,
    Bob and I are both sorry for your loss. Ted was a wonderful and kind man. He was always there to help anyone who needed help. Ted and Bob would always sit outside and just talk about everything. He will surely be missed.

    A picture of Ted and Katie taken on Ted’s 85th birthday cruise, taken by their tablemates. We could not believe how youthful he appeared. He and Katie were delightful. We are so sad to learn of Ted’s passing!
