  1. Dear Faye and Ted’s children and grandchildren and extended family ! am deeply sorry for this sad loss of Ted, who fulfilled so many roles in you individual lives. I so enjoyed Ted and Faye’s many visits to the coast where he would tell me how changed he was and that he had truly worked on himself to be the best person he wanted to be. I am holding you all close to my heart and sending prayers that happy memories of him will eventually ease your sorrow. I am so sorry I cannot attend the celebration of his life as I have medical appointments that day here in Victoria that I can’t cancel as I have waited along time for them. I will be thinking of you all on that day. Much Love, Denisexoxo

  2. I did not know Ted but we share the same last name. There must be a connection.

    My heartfelt sympathies.

    Christopher C. Neigel

  3. Dad said I had a way with words. Below are my words

    Some relationships are like a lazy river ebbing and flowing in and around your life The river just keeps everyone moving along

    Some relationships are like a tsunami. The tsunami hits and covers the relationship and leaves debris and uncertainty in place

    Some relationships are able to find the path back to the lazy river and others remain in the debris of the tsunami sometimes there is a hint of rebuild and other times the path to rebuild is blocked or buried again and becomes difficult to overcome

    Just because of difficulty to overcome some may think that nothing remains and at times this is true and at other times not. Digging out from the debris requires a unified effort to save not just one but both

    Rest easy dad the debris was covering what remained in its chaotic unseen and unspoken way of the life on earth

  4. His infectious Laugh, His larger than life smile, his kindness and love of his family .. What a kind loving proud man. A true honor to have known. Heartfelt sympathies to all, we share your loss. Rest in peace Ted.

  5. our sadness is greatly felt with your loss. god bless. kelvin and kelly lester and family.

  6. Remembering our wonderful turkey dinner that you had for us when we were in Alberta. The warmth, the laughs and the love was infectious.
    May comfort and peace surround you Faye and family, during this most difficult time. Please know that you are in our thoughts.
    With sincere sympathy.
