To the Brady family,

Uncle Ted was so full of life and knowledge…he was truly timeless! We have so many fond memories of him and Aunt Doris…it was always a wonderful time when they came to visit Red Cloud. Picnics, driving in the country, going out to eat, birthdays, homemade ice cream, and fireworks celebrations! We always chuckle about the time Jack hit the ball a little hard and nearly missed Uncle Ted after he pitched. He was always in the moment with family and friends and made people feel special! Uncle Ted and Aunt Doris were amazing people and will be missed but will live forever in our hearts!

Roger, please accept our heartfelt condolences. It was an honor to know your father. We enjoyed it so much when he and your mother stopped by for a quick visit as they passed through our neck of the woods a few years ago while on vacation. Holding you and your family close in our hearts...Tom & Julie

Dear Roger & Family,
We have lost another wonderful Christian man here on earth, but the heavens are certainly rejoicing! Your Dad was a very special person who touched many lives, and I know my Dad was blessed by him in many ways through their years of work together at Huntington College. You will be in my thoughts and prayers!
