Teddy had such a sweet spirit about him. He came into the Recorders Office on some personal business. I got the pleasure of helping him at the counter. He said he was lost and didn't know if he was in the right place or not. Turned out he was. He was so sweet and continued to thank me for all the help and information. It was a pleasure to know him. I am so very sorry for your loss Jerry and Katrina! Prayers for the family for peace and comfort!!!

Precious Teddy, gone far too soon, but oh I know where he is now! Many years ago I was one of Teddy's Sunday School teachers. As I'm sure you know, Teddy had the kindest heart and such genuine compassion for others. Jerry and Katrina, you raised such a fine person. Teddy's heart has always been in the right place. Some years ago when I went through chemotherapy, I remember Teddy praying so faithfully for me. Life is hard. None of us escape it unscathed, but Teddy's soul has always been well. May God bless you Jerry, Katrina, Sabrina and family.

My fondest memory of Teddy(as I called him) was one summer when they came to Ky to visit. His grandmother and my grandmother were sisters. We were all at my Nannie's house (Myself, April, Benji, Brandy, Sabrina and Teddy) playing, It was getting dark and my mom told us to walk to our house, that was just next door. There was actually just a big yard between our homes that connected them. So we went and done or got whatever it was she wanted us to get(later figured out that was part of their plan). As we were walking back to my Nannie's house, there was a big group of hedge bushes right in the middle of the yard. as we got closer to the bushes someone jumped out from between them dressed like a ghost with a sheet over them! You talk about children running every which way, and poor little Teddy and Brandy were just being pulled and dragged on the ground by the older kids because they couldn't run as fast as the ones holding their hands! As I type this I find myself smiling and remembering back to the good times and fun summer visits we use to have. The last time I saw Teddy was about 17 or 18 years ago. We went to visit them, and take Nannie back for one more visit. Teddy had a beautiful motorcycle and I took a picture of him riding my son Cory, who was probably 10 or 11 at the time. Cory kept that picture on his shelf in his bedroom,and was so proud of it! Katrina, Jerry, Sabrina and family, I am truly sorry for your loss. You are all in my thoughts and prayers, Love Carry
