  1. Dear Kathy, we pray that the Lord will comfort you in the loss of Ted. It’s hard to believe it’s been almost 6 years that we came to know you both, we will miss seeing him outside(on his tractor) working on the yard, as he loved to do. He was the best neighbor, always so friendly and thoughtful.

  2. Kathy — My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of sorrow. I cannot be there to show my respects to both you and Ted on Wednesday. Know that I will be there in spirit.

  3. Dearest Kathy:
    We will always be grateful to Ted for being such a sweet and intelligent companion to you. He definitely made your life interesting! Our thoughts and prayers are with you and his children, grandchildren and great-grandchild during this sad time.

  4. Hello Kathy,
    So very sorry to hear of your loss. I wish the opportunity for us to meet Ted had been possible. We will surely be keeping you in prayers and thoughts
    as you make this adjustment. Perhaps we will be able to have a visit at sometime in the near future. Sympathies to your family.
    Love, Kay and Larry Weigel

  5. Dear Kathy, I am so sorry to hear of this. I recall a family reunion in western Kansas many years ago, and did very much enjoy your conversations – and now I’m sad for your loss. Please accept our sympathy. You are in our thoughts. With love, your cousin Diana Rhoades Murdoch

  6. Dad,
    I guesss I have been in denile as to how ill you had become.All I could ever see was how strong of a man you were. These past few years being able to spend time with you, has meant so much to me. And my childhood memories of you and the special things that you did for me, will always be with me.

    Thank you Dad, for all the support you have given me and Lauren.

    I really loved you Dad, and I will miss you
    Your daughter, Brenda
