In the short time I knew Ted I can tell he had a heart of gold. When ever he entered a room it would light up like a Christmas Tree with is huge smile jokes and laughter. My prayers with the Craig family durning this tough time.

Our hearts and prayers go out to Monika and her family.
We really miss Ted. We did not realize how much until he was taken from us. We have many wonderful memories and Ted will always be in our hearts. Ted helped many people here on earth and now he is enjoying his rewards in heaven.
Whatever we may have to go through now is less than nothing compared with the magnificent future God has in store for us.
