Rhonda - I was saddened to read about Ted and I am so sorry for your loss. Ted made some unusual and difficult pieces for us that are beautiful. It was fun working with him and we had a lot of laughs after we finished business. He talked about you and the kids a lot, so we knew how much you all meant to him. He was a talented guy and we liked him lot.

Ted was a wonderful guy and I'm glad we got a chance to know him. He was an extremely talented craftsman, but he left his mark on the world by how he treated others and made them feel like a life long friend!
