|Let the memory of Tedros be with us forever|
"You are forever in our hearts. We carry on knowing that He that conquered death will return to abolish it once and for all. Can't wait till that great waking up morning, When Jesus comes to take us home. As the Bible clearly states, the dead will be resurrected and will meet Jesus in the sky. Oh what a glorious day that will be for we will all be reunited never to part again. I long for that day."
"Hi Teddy, the sun rose today with a very special charm, the clouds cleared today with a very special intent just to wish you a very Happy Birthday. Rest in peace brother!"
"Teddye yene konjo can't believe it's been three years. It's crazy
to think that I haven't talked to u or seen you for three years. We went from hanging out everyday to never seeing each other. I miss u so much, you will always for ever remain in my heart. RIP Teddye."
"Teddy,I still can't believe you're not here right now. I've always assumed we'd grow old together and reminisce about life and all those plans we had, now it's real to me that you won't even be here to celebrate with us when Tigest and I get married, be uncle Teddy to our kids, you finding that one woman that you'd settled down with and have kids as well..."
"... I can't help but feel deeply saddened that you are gone so soon..."
"It's only when I sit and think about the times we spent, laughs we've shared, trips we've taken, conversations we've had and most importantly the unconditional love you gave me as your brother, that I can smile and feel better as if you're still close by. I know our paths will cross some day but until then, I will miss you big brother. Rest in paradise, you are truely missed. Love always, Juni"
"1 Corinthians 15:22
"For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive."
2 Corinthians 5:1
"For we know that if the tent that is our earthly home is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.""
"Can't believe it's almost 3 years seblewengel, thinking of u and missing u. Will never never ever forget u....the scar u left in our hearts will not heal."
"Happy Birthday Teddy! You will always be loved and missed dearly. God bless you!"
"Happy Birthday big brother. I wish we could be celebrating right now but until we meet again, rest in paradise. Love you always, your little brother."
"Teddyea yene konjo I miss you so much.I don't know where the time has gone, but It has been two years already. Sometimes I just wish I could get a hug from you. No matter what you will always remain in my heart. I will forever love you. RIP"
"Yesterday came and went so fast I still don't believe your not here. So much has changed I don't know what you would think if u were here. I miss your brotherly love and comfort, you are still irreplaceable in my heart. I hope and pray you are resting in peace and paradise. I miss you bro, til we meet again keep watching over us. Love always your little brother"
"I still remember that touching poem...telling some touching stories."
"It's hard to believe its been two years, miss you bro. You and your family are always in my thoughts."
"we talked about you today, we talked about yesterday, we always talk about you. you left a big scar in our hearts Teddy. we miss you, we get mad at you but we will always love you. and the scar from our hearts will never heal. I miss going to starbucks with you. when we're all get together and we have good times, there is something missing and my heart can't help but to ache."
"Miss you so much Teddye."
"I feel a warmth around me
like your presence is so near,
And I close my eyes to visualize
your face when you were here,
I endure the times we spent together
and they are locked inside my heart,
For as long as I have those memories
we will never be apart,
Even though we cannot speak no more
my voice is always there,
Because every night before I sleep
I have you in my prayer."
"Teddy you were extremely special and had a heart of gold. May God rest your soul in peace. Much Love!!!"
"Love you always in graved in my heart will remain your name."
"just like always I just want to make sure your okay. I feel like we have been apart for a very long time. I know one day God will let us meet again until then RIP. You always said God is good all the time. I pray that he keeps you safe. You will forever be in my heart."
"You always told me to enjoy the moment and I am glad we did that. Teddye there has never been a day that I have stopped thinking about you. Life is different these days. I am happy, but a part of me always remains in deep sorrow. I wish I can just hear your voice,"
"Teddye I just wanted to write to you today coz it’s about to be fall and its cloudy out. This reminds me of the times when you tell me to call off work and we hang out together. I miss your good heart. Never have I and will never meet someone with such a good pure heart. I miss those days"
"Happy Birth Day Bro!"
"Happy birthday teddy!"
"Hi Teddy. "Good men must die, but death can not kill their names (Proverbs)" You left a piece of you with everyone, and we all pray that you are still a happy giant. God bless you and your family."
"You have been greatly miss you Teddy! I cant believe it has been a year since you have been gone. Its still so hard to believe that you are not going to be around anymore! I pray that everything is good and comfortable on your end. Rest in peace brother man!"
"Teddyea words can't express how I feel I can't believe its been almost year and I still ask my self every day is it real...I miss u so much!! I love you so much my brother!"
""I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me, even though they die, will live."Jn,11:25 May the Almighty God grant eternal rest to your soul, and give strength to your family to bear this loss. Teddy, you are missed so much and you'll always be remembered brother."
"tears from my eye wont stop from falling coz its been almost year and god knows how much I miss u."
"The righteous one himself has perished, but there is no one taking [it] to heart. And men of loving-kindness are being gathered [to the dead], while no one discerns that it is because of the calamity that the righteous one has been gathered away.
"It is painful even for someone new, but just let him go peace and my heart go out to you in your time of sorrow Tj."
"Teddye: No matter how many people I meet and no matter how many people I try to surround my-self with no one and I really mean no one can ever make me feel the way you did. At this point words can't explain how I feel. I feel helpless. I miss u so mu"
"Teddyea betam betam I miss u and don't know what to do!I love u so much! You were the best brother and best friend I ever had..I miss ur smile!!"
"Teddyea I miss you so much.you were my best friend and everything I have.u always use to say tgye "its just the two of us"and u left me behind by my self..what did I do to you.I can't stop calling ur phone wishing u would pick up one day but no luck."
"but now u had the heart to leave us all full of heart aches. u are hard to forget teddy, only a few people exist with a heart like yours. u are misssed and loved and forever will be."
"things that seemed nothing are so precious now. all ur words, thoughts, actions and jokes were special coming from a person with a beautiful heart & how u could put a lot of things in one hilarious & amazing sentence."
""teddy, i know it's been a while but still hasn't sunk in, still hard to believe. i miss u & im mad @ u. how could u get there? i try not to but everytime i think about it deeply, my heart aches and i don't understand why God does this. all those"
"Teddye yene konjo I miss u so much like crazy. Sometimes I get so mad and ask GOD why. I want to call u so bad and wish to hear your voice. Looking at pictures of u is killing me. I pray that GOD gives your friends, family and I strength. Time has never felt so long. I will always love u and miss you forever. Even though u are far away, u will remain close to my heart."
"Oh man, I still can’t believe you’re gone and it’s been over 7 months. I feel like I remember seeing you and hanging out with you like it was yesterday. There no words that can describe the loss we have all felt when you left. I’ve kept you in my prayers and all I have left is all but memories now. I miss you brother, never knew anyone that had heart as precious as yours."
"I’ve yet to meet a person that can give me honest advice without being biased. I miss the talks and all the fun we used to have, even the hard times. It was cool when you were around; you gave me a sense of comfort and that older brotherly love. I pray you’re in a better place, watching over us and holding the gates to heaven open until we reunite. You are forever missed."
"Hi Teddye I miss u so much today. On my birthday the one wish I would have is for you to give me a big hug. You will always be special to me. Dont ever think I forgot u, becuase you will be in my heart forever. Our love that we shared will always remain. Until I see u RIP."
"I miss you so much!!!!"
"I miss u so much Teddye. Sometimes I can't help it and tears fill up my eyes."
"I miss u so much.I wish I could just give u a big hug. Love you yene konjo."
"" I wish I can talk to you be with you somehow...." listening to R. Kelly nd think abt you!! Miss you very much!! Love you!!! I still can't believe you are gone!!"
"Teddye yene konjo, this is STILL very hard to accept. why teddy? why? you dont know how much im missing you on this day. i hope ur not feeling lonely yene konjo, ur always gonna be in my heart. forever. my heart aches too much thinking about everything.

"Tedye I love seeing you in my dreams, just like Bilen said please stay longer in mine too. I just had a really nice dream last night, you were in your favorite big fur jacket. We talked for a while I think we were walking towards my apartment. You told me how much u miss us all and how u really miss Beny.
Seemed so real. I would give the whole world to just give u one hug. I miss u so much."
"I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies.John 11:25
Teddy,you are missed so much and you'll always be remembered..............."
"im saying you're kind of selfish to leave all of these people here who love you so much but you chose your brother. Dave & eyob moved out of that house. P.S. try to stay longer when you appear in my dreams and change your cloth, cuz u've been appearing in the same cloth :-)miss u a lot."
"Teddy, i still can't believe this. i have a job now but i guess we can't go to dinner. my heart aches thinking that this would've been the happiest time of your life, shopping with beny and getting ready to go back home. im @ a point now that im wishing i didn't know your heart @ a point where"
"Teddyea I miss you!!"
"Teddye a part of me is dead. Teddy I don"t think I can ever be the same person without you! love you!"
"Teddye I missed you so much...there hasn't been a day I don't think about you OMG this is so hard I don't think I can do it. I love you and miss you so much....why teddy why please oh god why now why so soon...I don;t think I can ever recover from these...love you! Please come home its cold and rainy outside!

"Teddye I am not used to not talking to u for this long. I really miss u, I will keep praying for your family and friends who miss u so much, but I am realizing that we all are not here to stay. Please be our angel and let your light shine on us. Love u forever."
"lit a candle on 10/10/10 it took so long to put some fitting words for Teddy. I will always miss you and you will be in my thoughts but for Teguie, Zinash and Juni after the grief there has to be celebration on Teddy's life on earth. We all are in this world temporarily and when it is our time we will all meet him in heaven. Until we meet in the after life..."
"I have known Teddy since we were teenagers. Even though we attended different schools, being neighbors in the tightly knit community of Gabriel Sefer we shared so many unforgettable childhood memories, the passionate soccer matches, the long talks and walks, the study sessions and idle chats about everything in general and nothing in particular. We drifted apart after high school, and after he went to the US with his family we kept in touch through phone calls. It was painful to hear of his passing at such a young age, especially since all of us his childhood friends were eagerly awaiting his return home so that we could reminisce about the good old days, to live as teenagers once again through the joyful recollections of the great times that we have had. I normally don’t shed tears, but at the news of Teddy’s passing, I couldn’t control the tears coursing down my cheeks. Zinash: you have lost two wonderful children, and I can only imagine your grief, may God give you the strength to get through this difficult time. They have gone to a better place now. Dear Mintesenot: I am confident that your strength and perseverance will be of help to you in this painful time, not only to yourself but to your family as well. Dear Tigi: You have lost two wonderful brothers, I am sure your life is overwhelmed with sadness. You are always in my thoughts and I want you to keep in mind that God has a purpose for everything even if its difficult to understand. Remember that even though bad things happen to good people, its all part of God bigger plan and its best to put your faith in him. I pray that all of you will find solace in the fact that while with us, he touched the lives of many with his friendly and positive attitude towards life, helping his family cope with the sad loss of his younger brother who himself passed away too soon at cruel hands. He will be dearly missed. Rest in peace, Teddy!"
"HAPPY BIRTH DAY TEDDYE! ur greatly missed...wish u were here, i rememeber what we did on ur b-day last year at this time....i love you an i miss u so much"
"Happy B-day Teddyee!!you will never be forgotten my brother you will always be in my heart forever!

"Happy Birthday to you, Teddy!!!! We miss you! Rest In Peace!!!"
"Hey Teddye I can't believe we are only left with lil website of you....I miss you so much Teddyeeeeeee. It was so hard to get rid of your stuff...WOW I can;t believe it this is it.beka"
"“Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also"John 14:1-3
Dear,Teddy may God give strength to the family, until i see you again RIP(:"
"I miss you so much Teddye I can't believe I am not going to see you again!!!I"
"Teddye: I never wanted to accept the fact that you are really gone. Just the other day I was listening to your favorite ethiopian blues song. I remember how much you loved that song. Man its been very quite, very emprty. Life has been hard knowing that your not here. Now days I go to sleep wishing to dream about you. Your birthday is coming (October 1). Yene konjo I miss u so much."
"Teddy I can't seem to accept you are gone..
I miss you very much the house is so empty with out you.
I miss how you always told me how you loved me.
i miss how close we are.
I miss how much we have in common.
i miss the times we walked in the park.
i miss the times we talk our heart out to each other.
i miss how we fight."
"i miss how you would come to my room in sleep in the floor so we can talk.
i miss how you were a good friend.
i miss how you compare our hands hundreds of times and tell me "OMG tg ayigeremim ejachin eko ande new."...
I miss the times you would walk me to school and stay with me in the library so i can study.
I miss the time we spent in riverside."
"I miss the fact you are down to earth person, can take you anywhere i don't even feel like you are my big brother, i feel like you were my coolest friend.
I miss i can tell you anything.
I miss how you steal my shampoo, hair products and razors.
I miss you smart comments.
I miss your funny observations.
I miss how you always had hilarious jokes, there was never a dull moment ."
"I miss laughing at all the nicknames you give people.
I miss always having to wait for you to get out of the shower.
I miss eating with you.
I miss just sitting around being bored together.
I miss how we were mirrors of each other.
I miss your guidance, your thoughts, and your opinions.
I miss how you tell me everything BUT didn't tell me when you were gone be gone.
And I MISS YOU SO MUCH."
"Another day Tediye & this is becoming all too real. There is only this raw, gnawing pain that is a daily constant. 'I miss you' doesn't cut it, babe. Its like a vital part of you is missing and you're still trying to move foreward.. It's insane really! You had so much empathy for people & gave so much of yourself to others in the name of friendship, family, or just 'cuz they're fellow human beings. You never lost that childlike trust in people, regardless of all that came your way. I adored that about you. If the measure of greatness is in the multitude of others one affects, you were indeed a great man Tediye. You have touched so many lives around you! You have loved unconditionally and lived freely. I rarely said this 'cuz I always thought u knew... surely, u knew.. But I'm gonna say it just in case. I love, love, love you... my cousin, my brother, my friend. Thank You for taking care of me when I first got to San Jose. Thank You for sharing 'frisco' through your eyes. Thank you for patiently listening to all my thoughts and endless plans. You used to tell me that I shouldn't plan so much & just live. By golly, how right you were! So I'm going to honor your memory, & give up some of those plans.. and the backup plans for the backup plans... and just live. Rest in peace, my love."
"I miss you so much Teddyea:)I can't stop thinking about you....man this is so hard I never signed up for this I love you so much!!!"
"PART 1 OF 4****
Man this has been so hard! Its so crazy that we don't get to see you anymore. I still cant believe that you are gone! Too soon to be gone Teddy, toooo soon! We miss you so much Teddy!!! I remember you so much! I cant seem to accept that you are gone man. I remember the last time I saw you.. i remember how happy you were and i remember what you told me, all the plans that you had."
"PART 2 - 4*
Life has a different meaning for most of us since you have been gone, that we don't know who is going to be around 2morrow, and its possible that someone who is as young as you were and as close as you were to us can be gone in a second w/o a clear explanation. Its true that God takes the once that He loves so early, you are definitely ONE of them. You were a good man with a good heart"
"PART 3 OF 4*****
You respected all and you saw everyone the same way, regardless of who they are. Your jocks, your greetings, your smile, and your sincerity is something we cant forget!!! You will be remembered forever Teddy. Thanks for your kindness and the respect that you had for me! Love you brother!! You will be greatly missed!!!! May God rest you soul in peace!"
"PART 4 OF 4****
Who is going to talk about the funny thing that happened to me at Zeni now LOL. I will remember that day since you made fun of me the whole day LOL. And one thing, remember you said not to worry about not having a job since the san jose mayer doesn't even have a job, well Teddy the mayor has a job now and I don't anymore."
"during the few days i met with teddy, sure he was very sociable, very friendly and so caring, it's so too soon, you'll be missed forever man! but pray to God for resting your soul in peace,,,amen!!!"
"Teddy a word can't express how i feel...I can't believe you are gone...I am still waiting for you to come home.
I wake up everyday wishing it was just a bad dream but when i see your pic then i know it really happened.
I don't know if i can ever accept the fact you are gone ...
I never taught about you passing away....I always taught we were gone get old together and be happy
I taught we already paid the price by losing Danny so i never taught you would be gone
But I guess our family are the chosen ones
Teddy I was so mad at God for taking you away from us it was to soon and not fair but cant fight God...I ask my self everyday what did we do to deserve this....I know my mom especially doesn't deserve this but its from God so we have to accept it whether we want to or not.
Just the other day i had a dream about you waking up from the casket and i can't tell you how happy i was. It made me so happy but when i woke up and there was your picture by my bed I was so mad it was just a dream...
I don't know what the future is gone be for us with out you, but one thing that always comfort me is the when you were a live, you lived life like there is no tomorrow. You told all of us how much you loved and adored us.. I look back see your life, it all make sense, i used to tell you how emotional you are because you talked about your feeling like no one else..But now i can see it like being a part of the puzzle that your days were limited so you had to tell us everything you feel. Everyday of your life you told us how much you love us...I remember just about two weeks before you ....away. I walked into mommy's room, you were holding her hands saying " Mommy you know I love you very much right" its amazing i never seen someone in my life that express their feeling as much as you do...just in the regular day you would come in to my room and say the same thing. WOW Teddy you knew it all along that you were gone be gone soon so you spilled out everything in your heart at all times....
I was always been so scared of death but not i can't await to see you guys...now I have two brothers in heaven, i am sure we'll be reunited when it's my time..and I can see you guys catching up and laughing...I know God has put us here for a reason and I know you both had to believe in me so much to put this much burden on me...I promise you that I will be the best as i can be....Teddy I feel like you have trained me to be who i am today. You guided me thru life, about guys, about friends, about everything and i guess the training is over now your not here anymore...man i can't believe it, i remember when i was interviewing for a job you would stand out side and wait for me....I remember you would iron my shirt and tell me "ayozoshe Tgye" ......you would always put your life on hold and worried about me and my life..You believed in me so much and i thank you for being a great friend, a great father, a great brother....you would always tell me "tgye its just the two of us in this world" I love and miss you so much........Its was a pleasure to have had you as my brother. You were one humble guy who laughed, loved and lived life to with a passion."
"Lessons I learned from you:
Always tell your loved one you love them for no reason,
Let the simple things in life make you happy, like a cup of Starbucks coffee.
Always smile and be nice to people, you never know when you need them.
And never wear a shirt twice cuz life is too short.
I will be missing you until we meet again, love you always."
"The promise of heaven is sweeter today because we know that we will be reunited with all our loved ones. I hope you knew how much you were loved and how much you are missed. One day on the streets of gold may we meet again. Teddy you thought us how fleeting life really is; may we all be found faithful today because tomorrow is not promised. My prayers and thoughts will always be with the family."
"Teddy you were our best friend and for ever you will be!!!! In my heart forever you will be, and in my memories together, I’ll always have the memory of us,. Teddyie yene konjo you were so young and you had a brilliant future in front of you, I’ll never forget you, you may have died but in my heart and in my memories for ever you’ll be alive.!!!! Thanks to god to know u who had beautiful heart.
Everyday when i think of u and everything we did together, I can’t help the tears from falling of my eyes, until I see u I’ll always miss u and love u my good friend teddy!!! R.I.P"
"I remember from the first day I meet you we were instantly good friends. Teddy you are incredibly loyal friend. You loved life and you lived it with a positive passion. I am honored to have been your friend. You left too soon and your presence will be dearly missed everyday but not forgotten, you will live forever in my/our hearts. Rest in peace Brother. Love you always!!!"
"Teddy this is so hard me to write. Teddye yene konjo I do not even know where to start. I can start by saying I miss u so much. Sometimes I want to call your phone wishing you would pick up there are so many things I want to tell u. So many nights you have listened to me, held me, cried with me, laughed with me. You have left emptiness in my life. Teddye remember when we used to go to Selam restaurant and order kitfo and quanta fir fir. Man you loved kitfo. Funny thing was you got me loving kifto. I remember you used to say damn this kifto is good and your hand on your stomach. Remember the days we spent in San Leandero in an empty house. Only you would do something like that because of your big heart. I forgot to tell you thank you for helping me move and keeping my stuff for me at your house until my place was ready. Teddye I miss your laugh, most of all I miss your voice, the way you walk. Man this is hard, but deep down inside I know you wanted to be with your brother. You had so much love for your family and friends. Every time we went some were we always had to stop somewhere for you to say hi to someone. Teddye you listened to the whole world, you made time for everyone. I miss going to Starbucks and coming out with a cup of coffee laughing about nothing. I will never forget you, you will always have special place in my heart. I’ll never forget the times you and Beny would cook at Bilen’s house and u would call me when I was at work so excited. I miss walking with you and talking to you about whatever I wanted. You made me feel so special in your life. Sometimes I want to forget but you are always are apart of everything I do. Oh Teddye remember Bart rides, when you would leave from San Learndero to Fremont then take the bus to San Jose. You know the crazy thing is you would wait for my Bart to come first then you would get on yours. You always looked out for me. Man Teddy all know is I really miss u. This is difficult, so many memories. I guess until I see u again I will keep the rest. Yene konjo your life will always remain with so many people. Your kindness and your big heart will live on earth for many more years to come. You will always have a place in so many people’s life because you were so real, the realest person ever. As for me I will never stop talking about you or thinking about you. It’s been hard. Tears will always fall from my eyes but you also have made me a strong person. Thank you for sharing your beautiful life with me and until the next lifetime RIP.
"For the Lord Himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air." I Thessalonians 4:16-17, NIV"
"teddy, you'll be missed, was looking forward to hanging out with you on the Bay trips - will reminisce on the nice riverside times! i'm finding out more about you even now and it's a pleasure, looking forward to remembering you with the family. rest in peace."
"Dear Teddy you will be missed greatly. You'll never be forgotten. God bless ~ rest in peace. Love always, Teddy"
"Teddy,I have no word to express your generous loving heart! I lost a brother and a dear friend. Thank you so much for taking your time to show me I had an angle friend! God be with you and rest in peace!"
"Teddy, I thank God to have known such a kind and peaceful person such as yourself. We will never forget your distinct voice and ear to ear smile. You have had a profound effect on countless people and you will forever be missed. God bless you and your family."
"Teddy!! I was looking forward to growing old together (and going back home together-did u forget??). My heart aches every waking moment. I'm trying my hardest to focus on the times I've had with you and not on the ones that I'll miss out on. I would give anything to have had just one more hug before you left. I'll carry this heartache till I see you again. I guess this is goodbye till then. Love u 4ever!"
"Teddy you are a great brother and friend. I remember when I heard the news of your passing I simply could not believe it. It was too soon... Teddy just know that you are loved by so many people. I will forever be grateful to have known you Teddy. I'll never forget your humble and grateful attitude. Teddy, until we meet again Rest in peace my Brother."
"Teddye, you are missed so much and you'll always be remembered. You are the purest person I know and I'm glad a person with a good heart like yours was once my friend. I'll cherish the moments we had together forever. You were the most positive,pure hearted, friendly, never fake and loving person around me. Mostly, I'll never forget the respect you had for me. Till we meet again, R.I.P."
"In memory of my big brother Teddy, you left us too soon. I know your in a better place with your younger brother. I'll do my best with the family until we meet again bro, hold the gates open for us and know I'll be missing you everyday. Rest in peace brother."
