Ted's exemplary legacy of following Christ is an example for all of us. He was a great friend who shined through Christ's love and presence through his life and friendship. Two Bible verses he would (and does now) affirm are: ...the salvation of the righteous is from the Lord; He is their strength... Ps. 37:39, and Ps. 37:18, The Lord knows the days of the upright, and their inheritance shall be forever. That says our days on earth are only the begining of our time with Him in eternity. Praise the Lord! --Carl, from Montana
