    It is so sad to hear that Ted has gone after the struggle of the last five years. Life was not kind in recent years. However, I do remember a lot of good times we shared over more than 50 years. Ted and Ida were good friends of Grace and I.

    Dear Ida and family,
    On behalf of St. Andrew’s United, I wish to extend our heartfelt sympathy on Ted’s passing. I have enjoyed meeting and visiting with Ted the few times I’ve been able to see him. He was born near my home town so perhaps we had something in common. He was gentle and light hearted. Blessings, Wilma Clark, Srs. Ministry, St. Andrew’s

    To the clan out west,

    Our thoughts are with you in your loss. I had looked forward to another visit with Ted this summer. I remember other visits over the years and how gracious, kind, open and welcoming he and Ida always were. Hopefully I’ll see him down the road some time.

    Brian
