    My deepest sympathy to you Aunt Eileen and family. I was able to reconnect with Ted on Facebook. I remember the summers spent with my cousins. May God comfort all of you at this time. Love to all.

    Please accept my sincerest condolences for your loss. I wish I could say I knew cousin Teddy better than I did. He always had kind words to say when he responded to my posts on Facebook. I will not be able to make it there for the services. Again, my deepest sincere condolences to his immediate family and all the cousins, aunts uncles and his parents.
