Growing up next door to Uncle Ted & Aunt Wanda, He was a "consistent" in my youth. I have such good memories. Going home won't be the same without Uncle Ted being there. I do believe even though he has left us here on earth. Friends and Family that have gone before have greeted him with open arms and Uncle Ted is "home". It was a honor and privilege having Uncle Ted in my life.
My heart goes out to Aunt Wanda and all my cousins.
