Not sure what to say?

Bonnie, Justin and Family,
We are so sorry for your loss. Ted was a good friend and co-worker, and we will always remember the many good times and laughs we shared. He was tough when he needed to be, but he also had one of the kindest hearts to those less fortunate. He left too soon and he will truly be missed. We pray for your family during this difficult time.

I just learned of Ted's passing and I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Ted for about four years as his surveillance officer in the P&P district. He was a great guy with a good sense of humor.

Bonnie and family....we send our sincere sympathy for your loss. Our daughter, Lollie, as a young P.O. was assigned to work under Ted. She has always expressed her deep appreciation of Ted being a wonderful mentor, co-worker and more importantly, great friend, even after she left for a different agency. I know this friendship has continued with your family over the years. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Bonnie and Justin, I am so sorry to hear of Teds passing. I know the wonderful memories you have of him will be what will carry you through the coming days. My thoughts and prayers are with you!

I had the opportunity to work with Ted several times during the last 33 years. We attended Police Academy together and then worked together at Roanoke County PD. He was always a pleasure to be around and to talk with. You will be missed!!! Your family should be proud of the person you were!!!

Allen Family,

Please accept my deepest condolences at this very difficult time. I was shocked to see of his passing.

It has been many, many years since I have seen Ted. However, having grown up on 31st St., I have many fond memories of my childhood and the friends raised on 30th St. You could always count on Ted being a little "imp". I am sure none of that was his fault as he always "hung out" with Mike and the other "older" guys from the...

Grief can be so hard, but our special memories help us cope. Remembering you and your loved one today and always.

Justin and family,

How very sorry I am for the lose of your father (husband, grandfather, friend). My heart aches for what you are going through. I am lifting you all up in prayers. God keep you in his arms.
