Ted took care of our three children sometimes while my husband Bill, Lila and I went to choir practice. He gets a big reward for that! Marie

Dear Lila and family, My heart is sad knowing what a loss your very loved Ted is. My husband Larry and I know he IS in a better place, and that indeed lessens the sadness How can we not be lifted up in our souls thinking of the most wonderful place like one can't experience here on earth. God has prepared a dwelling place for Ted. One it is even hard to imagine the surpassing beauty and joy of being with the Lord there. God is love and joy and peace. We know all is well there. May God fill the place Ted no longer fills here on earth for each of you. Wait and trust and enjoy life as you wait for the breaking of the day when we will all be reunited. I love you all, Marie and husband Larry
