"Missing you more than ever Ted.
Can't tell you the million ways your sweetness continues to touch me across the span of time. You hefted the challenges, lightened my load.
You added sunshine to our days.  You brought a depth to music I would never have known.
You were always the one to say "I"m sorry" after a tiff.
Most of all, and most importantly, you made me laugh. From day one.
I will always love you Ted."

"Dear Helene:
We were so sad to hear that you had lost Ted, your amazing husband. How brave he was, I'm sure to the end, and what a sweet man (never met him but he has such a sweet face in the picture here.) I know this is a great loss for you - you took such loving care of him - and send you big hugs.  Please let me know when you are back in Vt. Sent with much love, Elayne (and Arnold)."

"So sorry to hear of Ted's passing.  He was such a gregarious happy fellow with a big smile and quick wit.  He did everything he could to battle the cancer so he could spend more time with his lovely wife Helene ~ it bought him some time, but unfortunately not enough; he was too young and still had more celebrating to do with friends and family.  We'll certainly remember him with a toast."

"My husband. My friend. My love since 1982. My wiling partner in all things meaningful.  A man's man; an appreciator of all things beautiful, pretty girls notwithstanding.  Loved his adopted grandkids, loved his pets and yours.  Easily hurt, keeping such  well hidden.  
Truly a poetic soul, a deep appreciator of music, a true wit.
But what marked him most of all, his unique generosity from the  heart, to all who came into his life.  He always found a way to serve, in the humblest manner.  You are one in a million Ted, and forever in my heart."

"“Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.”  Buddha
  
  This quote symbolizes Ted's life......When you spent time with him, his humor and lightheartedness would rub off on you as well.  He always had a smile and a humorous twist on anything that happened around him.  He really was such a sweet and humble man.  His spirit will live on in the lives that he touched.   I am a better person for having known you Ted."

"Lighting a candle or laying a flower just doesn't seem quite right for you Teddy.  I'm raising a glass to you instead.  To your quick wit, your tireless energy, your humility and your generosity.  You put up an incredible fight.  Love you always."

"Keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time! As a daughter who watched her father battle cancer for about 2 years as well, I found some comfort in knowing he wasn't suffering any longer. Dante, the girls and I send you all our love!"
