My heart aches for your loss. I have so many wonderful memories of Ted and Norma. I will miss the after Christmas calls Ted always gave me each year. I like to think that Mom and Dad, Norma and Ted are up there sharing old times and laughter. My love to you all and I will always be grateful for Ted in my life.

Enjoyed meeting and being with your father at Sunrise when I had lunch with my dad and mom, Jack and Adeline Morris. Your dad had a sense of humor we enjoyed. Will miss him.
