We will miss him but have a lot of good memories of time spent with Ted. Ted was a wonderful man, very loving kind and gentle. He didn't act like an old man he was young in his thinking and he loved his family.
We will be unable to attend the memorial service due to other commitments on Thurs.
We loved Ted.
