  1. Midge, Gerry and family: I was so sorry to hear about Ted — as a member of the LHS Class of ’69, Ted will be remembered as always having a smile on his face and being a “bright spot” among the school and students. He was always willing to lend a helping hand — and even was willing to be a counselor to a “girl”, even though he was the boy’s counselor! He will truly be missed, but long remembered by all. Thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

  2. Please accept my deepest sympathy on your loss. I was a student in Mr. Gerringer’s band at Lamar High School from 1948-1951, He was always very good to me. Joann Rich Seiling
