Ted, I was always excited to be around you. You could light up a life, man. You lit mine up. More than once, too!! You knew your stuff, too, that’s for sure. You, dude, knew how to connect those dots. Sure do love you and gonna miss you a lot. And I know you’re not finished.
Rest In Peace, Big Guy, knowing how loved you are. You were my first love and my forever friend. A little piece of my heart went to heaven with you. My condolences to BK and the family.
BK, I do not know you, but Ted Loved you so much. In our last conversation on FB, PM, (1.27.2022) we were talking finance stuff. He said wistfully, I set a goal for savings, so that if anything happened to me, my wife could live comfortably after I’m gone. He said, “I just hit the goal”.
WOW! That is pure Love IMHO!
RIP Ted, Mission Accomplished!
Dearest BK, please accept my heartfelt condolences on Ted’s passung. He was such a good friend to me, Larry Joe and Erin. Hugs to you, Lady.
Miss ya already ol friend.

Oh Ted, thank God we had our long brotherly and sisterly reminiscence on your 70th birthday, January 19. We covered all our happy times including Switzerland and your many cruises ending with all our trials and tribulations but you ended at peace with the wonderful loving life you had even if it stopped tomorrow. Ted, you are so loved by all of your Sutton/Werner/Priess/LaGrappe girls! We will miss you!
Goodbye baby brother. Love you! Judy
