We were so sorry to hear of Ted's passing. He was a good friend to us and always had a smile on his face whenever we'd see him. We'll miss that gruff voice & laugh of his. Praying for your comfort.

Jean, Vickie, Matt and Mike - my heart is very heavy today to hear this news. Tedder was my first everything. Someone you keep in your heart no matter what happens, no matter where this life takes you. And even after all these years my heart is breaking all over again. I do know your pain as I went thru this 3 years ago with my own brother. Words can't make since of it. Nothing makes it better. I have to believe that he is happy where ever he is at and whatever demons he had are finally gone. I am so sorry for your loss. Hugs and prayer to you and has family.

Even though we weren't blood related, you were always a wonderful stepdad to me. Thank you for being there for me even though you didn't have to be. You will be greatly missed. Love you always - Ashley
