I've known Iris since we were teenages, but I've only met Ted a couple of times. The last time we were together, he was about thirteen. I was amazed at how obedient he was to his mother. I mean he was like yes mame no mame. He cleaned the kitchen without his mother having to say anything to him. He was quite and very, very mannerly. It was a pleasure seeing him in action and me knowing how crazy my girl Iris is, to see such a perfect product of her son, it amazed me (ha,ha). Iris Ted and Yahwanathan are now together. Love you Ted, and Yahwanathan. Iris we raised our kids to know God, and now we have two perfect kids in heaven! To God be all the glory!

My memory of Ted, when I would call his moms house and he would answer the phone I would say hey Teddy Baby and he would say Maaaa its miss Rosalind, I would ask how did you know it was me and he would say you are the only one who calls me Teddy baby. I love and miss you Teddy baby.

I remember Ted when he went on a hike with our group. He was very inquisitive about the hike and he enjoyed the hike. Just being able to share that time with him was fantastic. He was a beautiful young man with a wonderful personality.

I have so many memories. Gosh where can I start?! Hmmmm....let me see. I remember when Ted was in high school and he called me at work. He said "Ma, we got a situation here and I need you to listen. Don't ask any questions, just listen. I'm in the bathroom and if I get caught on the cell phone, I'll get in trouble"! I cracked up laughing because I normally have to have all the details when talking to Ted so that I know what I'm dealing with and how to handle it! What was so funny is that he knew me well enough to know that he didn't have time to give me all the details, he had to get right to the point!!

Thank you God and Iris for allowing Ted to cross my path at HLCC College Team Ministry. Ted was always a joy to be around at all of the college team trips. Thank you Iris for creating this page in his memory. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16

I remember one day (Ted was little) and my sister was driving down Ardwick-Ardmore Road. Ted was in the back seat and my sister and I were talking. Then she and Ted went back and forth about something. He told her e was gonna punch her in the eye. And she told him if he was bad enough, to do it. He said "Here it comes" and punched her in the eye from the backseat!
