  1. Ted,

    Thanks for all the good talks we shared during our short time working together. I will never forget how you showed me how to shave with a bar of soap and no mirror, always thought you were crazy, but had to clean up to enjoy the Barrel. I do it all the time now because of you! You were truly a great person who always had a smile and someone I loved to “shoot the ****” with at work. Never had a bad thing to say about anyone. Way to early! Rest in peace!

    Your Father, husband, grandfather, boyfriend, or friend, was a genuine good man!

    God Bless!

  2. Bridget and Sammy, my heart is heavy for you and your family. There are no words in the dictionary to describe the pain one feels when losing a special soul. I encourage you to always talk about him to your friends, family and especially your children. This will keep him alive for all eternity. In time your pain will ease and will almost seem to subside, however, your love for him will carry on. His love for you will always be around. The smallest things will remind you of him, that is when he is holding your hand. He will hand pick your children for you and will always be there when you need him most. Keep an open mind and an even more open heart and you will see he is there.

    Love and laughter always,
    Laura Miga & family

  3. Ted and Tona, I am so sorry for your loss. My heartfelt condolences from my family to yours. Stay strong.
