    Words cannot not express our sadness for your family. Linda, we had only met Ted a couple of times at the park and we were invited with open arms to your yearly fish fry. Unfortunately we didn't get a chance to get to know him better. Every time we met him he always had a bright and sunny smile and I am sure he will be deeply missed by all of his friends and family.

    I'm so sorry for your loss I worked with Ted at the PVC plant for many years and knew him as an intelligent and standup man! I'm sure I speak for the other workers from the old PVC plant in saying how saddened we are of Ted's passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with the whole family and may you take comfort in knowing he is pain free and looking over all of you now.

    Linda, I was so sorry to read that your husband has passed on. The only time I had spoken to the both of you was at Paul's funeral. I brought my son Steven with me there and it was just so hard for him to understand. I was Paul and Mike's school bus driver back then. Seems like a hundred years ago now. I saw Paul's face when I first looked at Ted's picture. That same happy grin. They are in each others arms now Linda. You are in my prayers. ♥
