Posted Condolences:


  1. Ted was more like a true brother to me then a brother-in-law. His passing leaves a great hole in my heart.

  2. Bev and Family: So sorry to hear of Ted’s passing, may your memories bring you comfort at this difficult time. Ted was at the Stop and Shop (I think Squeaks at that time??) when I was in high school waiting tables and he was ALWAYS so nice, helpful and just a kind person . . . would help with anything asked of him, with a smile. He will indeed be missed .

  3. Dear Beverly and Family, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this sad time! With our Deepest Sympathy! Tim and LaVerne Frakes
