Juanita, Carly, Lisa & Family....Your Dad (and your Mom) meant so much to our family. Those Sunday visits and those Cape Cod vacations will always be such joyful memories! We smile every time we think about Uncle Teddy reaching into his pockets to come up with candy money for our kids. Both of your parents were the picture of class, both inside and out. Their lives confirmed that their hearts were always filled with genuine love and concern for others. Now they (along with many others from our families) are together in Glory. Safe in the arms of Jesus! Someday we will all be reunited together again. We will keep all of you in our hearts and prayers...... Love, Pamela & Bobby 💕

Great Uncle Teddy was the most debonair man I have ever known! SO classy, suave, debonair and was always dressed to the nines! I am happy that he has received his angel wings and is able to reunite with his wife Auntie Ruth and his sister Josephine (Nana). Love, prayers and strength. Attached is a picture of uncle Teddy and my son AJ at Nana's “Celebration of life” Love Atia
