  • Barbara, You may not remember me, but Ted stood in as my daughter's (Heather) godfather 34 years ago. He was a friend of my ex-husband Bud Runshang. I just read in the online newspaper of your loss of Ted and I wanted to express my sympathy to you and your children. I am living in Mobile, Alabama, now where Heather and her husband Joe and their three children live. I remember how nice you and Ted were to me all those many years ago. He was a fine man.

  • Very sorry to hear about your husband's and father's death. He was a fine man with a great smile and a beautiful heart. I can vividly remember watching Packer games at your home and what a warm and caring neighbor that he always was. I am sure that God will comfort you in this time of sorrow. I will remeber you in my prayers. If you are in New England, come see me and my family.
