What can I say about Ted? Not much. He and George were close to each other. I being older than the two of them, I just talked to Ted when there were get togethers. The last time I saw him was at Mary Jo's party. He was in good spirits then. As his picture shows, he always had that smile (smirk) on his face. He's probably looking down at us, with that smirk saying, "What's all the fuss about?"
Rest in peace Ted,
Cousin Bill

Ted was a special person who I will always remember with great fondness. Grew up with Ted and all his brothers and sisters. Being one of the youngest in such a dynamic family he had it though but was always joyful and full of love for everyone. Will never forget the story of what his brothers did to him just before he joined the army. His mom, dad and brother John were also special to me and I still miss them. It is nice to think they are now together taking care of each other.
