It has always been a pleasure speaking with you and your mom and dad. Visiting you all those years ago, making memories, and keeping contact has been a joy. Ted always reminded me of an "old world" gentleman, like a Rhett Butler. Wouldn't he get a chuckle over that? He and Dot are together again, dancing, bowling or whatever whim takes their fancy. He shall be missed.

My father was a faithful member and contributor to St Georges Anglican Church. Each autumn as the ACW prepare for the fall supper, 60 pounds of russet potatoes were donated and went on to be called “Teds Potatoes”. Dad loved nothing better than to be at a gathering or have company at home to talk and to reminisce about times past. As there will be no gathering of the community to celebrate him and his life, I hope you know that you can make contributions to St Georges in his name. That would please him.
I love you Dad and miss you more than words can say. Rest In Peace and Rise in Glory All my love, Elizabeth
