Memories Timeline


  1. Going to miss Brother Tedy. He was an inspiration and a treasure trove of Spiritual knowledge and guidance. Currently in Atlanta and am sorry to not be able to visit with his family and church brothers in this time of celebrating his life❤️ If there is anything I can do Tina and Bear; please let me know. He is greatly missed and I’m sure you must be saddened but rest assured, he is with our Lord and Savior and would want all of us to continue to focus on Jesus and pray that we become more like Him… God Bless you Tina and Bear, love you 🙂

  2. Ted, was a man of God, and always made me feel good, like a father to a son… I’ll miss his character…

  3. Karmen, Christina, Jennifer and family – We are so sorry to hear of the loss of Ted. May the memories you have of your Dad bring you comfort during this difficult time. Thinking of you all.
