Ted's untimely death touches us all. My deepest condolences to Mrs. Rosenberg.

I will always have happy memories of playing ping-pong and bridge and just hanging out together at our houses in Cayuga Heights. From telling jokes in the back of the room during Jr. Honor Society meetings at Boynton, to bemoaning our latest hapless performance after another IHS dance, to starting to make a go of it as adults in NYC, we were close friends throughout a transformative period of our lives.

It's such a great tragedy that Ted suffered from his illness. He possessed the most brilliant and creative mind. Ted was always writing for the ages, and he had three of his poems published in the Spring '81 issue of the _Beloit Poetry Journal_ (available online at: http://www.bpj.org/index/V31N3.html). Here's a short "contributor's note" he wrote back then:

Theodore Rosenberg, born Nov. 8, 1953, is currently writing a doctoral dissertation on American Puritanism in the English department at Cornell. "To Voluptuous Plumpness" was written when he was eighteen and a sophomore at Harvard; "The Mona Lisa" when he was nineteen and a junior; and "After Williams" was written when he was twenty-two and at Cornell. He has poetry forthcoming in _Just Pulp_.

I was very sad to read that Ted is gone. He was a thoughtful, kind person as well as smart and talented. We were classmates at Ithaca High School; during a very dark time in my life, Ted reached out to me and sent me a note: " ' The quality of mercy is not strained; It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven...' "
I never forgot that gesture of kindness and acceptance that Ted made and the drop of relief he gave me.

Sad news indeed. My first memory of Ted is from Cayuga Heights Elementary School. Bright and interested in geology and the sciences, he was more curious about shale formations on the playground slopes than the tetherball court. My condolences to his family.
