    I just wanted to let you know how sorry I am for your loss. May fond memories give you some peace. I will always remember your Father as a very kind, gentle and quiet man. He was a good friend and neighbour to my Mom and Dad (Bill and Irene Hellofs). My Dad and your Dad would help each other and chat about anything and everything. I can really empathize with all of you.

    Amid the tears and the longing to have him back there is sure to be some great shoulder-shaking-Linney laughter there today. Ted modelled stamina, ingenuity and imagination. We loved him.

    Kindest regrets from Jackie, Liam Skett and Della Field.
