    Sending prayers of comfort to Ted’s family and friends. I had the pleasure of being Ted and Elenor’s next door neighbor for many years and they doted on my daughter Valerie. I moved out of the neighborhood a couple of years after Elenor’s passing however, stopped by every once in a while if Ted was outside. My last visit was several months ago and had I the opportunity to catch up with Ted. It gave me great joy to know he shared his love of life with Rose and his family. Ted was a gentle man with a heart of gold who always offered kind words of encouragement to me and my daughter. May he rest in eternal peace with God.
