My ministry at Memorial Baptist Church is to pray for and connect shut in members to the church by visits, calls and cards. My memory of Ted is that he was uncommonly kind, gentle, and full of gratitude. A visit with him was an oasis of peace and tranquility in a world of chaos. The world needs more like him.
