I met Ted when I was 18 years old and he was 32. He was my supervisor at the Hewitt Soap Co. for 6 years. Many times I took my young daughter over to Ted and Dianna's house to visit. We stayed in touch for nearly 50 years. In the past 2 years I would run into Dianna and Ted at Kroger in Englewood. The last time I saw him was about a month ago. He always had a smile on his face. He was a good, gentle, decent man.

Your family was one of the first we met when we moved here in 2000. You and Ted have been a fixture at our 4th of July breakfast almost since the beginning. We will miss him and his potato and egg casserole. Many hugs to you.
