Dearest Linda and Erin and family, we are keeping you in our prayers that your saddness will be replaced with sweet memories of your beloved husband and dad. Please let us know if we can do anything to help you through this time of grief.

Mary Jane and I are stunned and so very saddened by Ted's premature passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with Linda and the family.

Jack Henderson

Our thoughts and prayers will be with you Aunt Linda and Erin. We will not be able to comfort you or your families in person, but please know our deepest sympathies and comfort are with you spiritually. Uncle Ted was a great man. I still remember the first fly fishing rod he bought me and the silver metal case full of his own personally tied flies that came with it. It is the small memories that memorialize a person for eternity. Uncle Ted will be missed by many, he has touched the lives of many. May he rest in peace. We will pray for your strength through this difficult time.

Matt, Becky and the kids

To Linda and Erin - My heart is with you at this difficult and sad time. I have so many fond memories of our times and laughs together. Hold on to those memories and I know you will find your strength in God.

Linda Lehman-Bennett

So!!! Sorry to hear about the passing of Ted. He will be greatly missed.

Dale & Dottie Johnson

To Linda, Erin and family,
Our hearts go out to you at this time, because words cannot express the sorrow we feel, upon hearing of your loss. Please know that you are in our prayers.
