Teddy...what a guy. The only person I know who could make me look and feel unkempt! The only guy I would trust with my car...the only guy I know that when he answered the phone, and you asked him how he was, always, always said "Excellent!" He was and always will be in my mind, a one of a kind. Willing to do anything for you at anytime. I watched Ted grow up with our two boys and am so

"Our Teddy is no longer with us." I will never forget those words and I will never forget Teddy. Such a fine human being. So warm, kind, thoughtful, positive, funny, and smart. So handsome and impeccable in his dress and manners! Such a good friend to my daughter, for which I am grateful.
I ache for Erica, Robin, Teddy's family, and all of Teddy's many friends. There is a hole in our hearts and lives. Nancy and Tom, I am

Ted (Teddy) was one of my favorite students. He always contributed to the class discussion and activities. I was impressed by his insights and his genuine interest in the study of literature. He was a student that left a lasting impression and I am deeply saddened. The world is missing a bright light of passion, enthusiasm and zest for life. Meagyn Keys Karmakar

When remembering our friend, Ted, I will always think of two things: his wonderful sense of humor and his unwavering support of another’s ambition or talent. Even as early as high school he acknowledged other’s accomplishments with encouragement and was first to send a genuine complement. Because of this I always looked forward to sharing thoughts and ideas with him as I knew his friendship was a safe harbor to nurture creativity. It’s a lesson in friendship and decency that I’ll take with me for the rest of my life.
