Carol, Darren, Jody and families ~ Deepest Sympathies to all. We are so sorry for your loss. I have fond memories from childhood of Cherry Grove. Each of you are included in those. My dad thought a lot of Ted, and perhaps they will share a cup of coffee, recalling memories, as they watch over. God bless each of you extra at this sad time.

So very sorry to hear of your loss. When I think of your family I always think of the elderberries Ted shared with us a few years ago. He had a lot of wisdom, a kind heart, and he will be deeply missed by many.
