You have my deepest sympathy. I have always enjoyed seeing Ted when I would go to his father’s house (my great Uncle Toot) with my Mother, Arlene Schloder Young, when I was very little. My prayers are with you, Ellen and Ann.

So sorry to hear about Ted’s sudden passing, Ann and Ellen. This man was such a big part of my childhood and I will never forget his kind ways. He would be so very busy in his garage and stop whatever he was doing to sell us all candy and was so patient waiting for us to choose what we wanted. It breaks my heart to share in grief of the loss of a kind soul but your memories of him will always be carried and cherished inside your hearts and I know that I will never forget him. I was unable to share my condolences in person but I sure think of you all mourning his loss and say prayers that your family and friends wrap their arms around you, especially at this devastating time and may GOD help to ease your pain from the empty space left in your lives.

Leave A Condolence
