Father's Day was just last Sunday and not just that day but many days I reflect on how much I miss him and mom. Dad was a simple, brilliant, witty and amazing man.
He encouraged me through my life as I watched his example of love and caring for others more than himself. We shared a wonderful adult, father-daughter closeness anyone would envy. He was my mentor and personal adviser.
He was happy knowing that I became strong in my life pursuits, was happy and married a wonderful man so he wouldn't have to worry about me. He taught me courage in the face of difficulty. I will be grateful to him forever.

Visiting with Ted during his final months, even though we both knew what was ahead, was very special for me. We shared a lot of memories of our times together here in Bellevue but also about our Air Force days and the 2 years we served in the same aircraft maintenance squadron at Earnest Harmon Air Base in Newfoundland, Canada. Boy, those were the days. Working on aircraft during the winters when we averaged 20 feet of snow a year! We were constantly turning the KC-97s into the wind before Mother Nature would do it for us. And that was in addition to the other maintenance we had to do. Ted already had a lot of experience as a Chief Master Sergeant and I was a new First Lieutenant but he always treated me with respect as I did for him. Will I miss him? Only like someone who is half way around the world because I will always remember him and respect him. Jim Bell

Ted was not only my best friend's father, but a great guy. I loved him like a father figure. Thank all of you for sharing him with my family and I.
