    I would like to express my heartfelt sympathy to the family for the loss of your dear Ted. I hope that you will find comfort in the words of Jesus at John 5:28,29 where he promised that the day is coming when he is going to resurrect back to life those in the grave. And they will be brought back to a beautiful paradise earth with no more sickness. (Psalm 37:11,29) (Isaiah 33:24) Until then, it is just like your dear Ted is sleeping. (John 11:11-13) May your family draw strength from Jehovah, the God of all Comfort.

    Dear Dad,
    Thank you for all the wonderful years we’ve had together. You have been an amazing father. I’m grateful for all the guidance, support and the strength you’ve given me. You taught me to be a strong independent woman. Thank you for taking care of mom, and always being there for her no matter what. This year would’ve been 36 years of marriage, just amazing- you don’t see that too often anymore. Your commitment to our family is beautiful and inspiring. Your grandchild adore you, and they thank you for being a great grandpa. Your laugh and smile is contagious.
    I love you daddy.
    Love you forever,
