Ted, I remember when I first met you, we had a connection, I'm not sure what it was ,but I was instant family, the kindness you gave me , as though we knew each other for years, and I thank you for that. Janice called me sis and the kids called me auntie.
You couldn't have imagined how close I felt to you and your family.

You will be truly missed, and I pray that you sleep in peace in heaven, you will forever be in my heart and thoughts.

I am sad to learn of Little Teddy’s passing. I remember our trips to Paterson to visit the Wright family and their trips to Tinton Falls to visit the Seay family. I pray that his family experiencesthe comfort of the Holy Spirit during their time of mourning. Above all,  I pray that you look forward to that day when you will be reunited in the resurrection - 1 Thessalonians 4:16.
