Judy and Teddy had the most beautiful outdoor wedding ever -- wonderful to see these two had finally found their soulmates. It hardly seems like any time has passed at all.

Ted and I would throw things at each other at work and fight like a married couple. Oh and the pranks... He pulled pop can chain down Lougheed Highway one night after a staff outting to Cirque De Sol...funny part he got the cans for me to help me with a project!!! LOL. Laugher and

stories are how I will remember Ted. God Bless My Friend.

Your crazy sense of humour is something that I will never forget. Even when you left, we all thought about you often and still laugh about all the crazy things that you said or did.

I will forever remember fondly the time we spent with you and Judy in Seattle watching the Mariners and the Bluejays. You and I sitting beside each other with you cheering on the Bluejays and me the Mariners. We were so happy that you both could join us for this trip.

You were gone too soon.

Sylvia and Louis ❤️

I will always remember Teddy as a positive guy who always had a smile on his face and who loved to make everyone else smile and laugh. My condolences to the family losing another member too soon. Catherine McGregor
