Dear Harada Family,
My deepest sympathies to all...I just found out about Ted's passing, he was an Angel on Earth for his courage and his openess to help others. I had a best friend with ALS, who found hope that some day this disease would be conquered, and Ted was leading the battle from the patients point of view.

Thanks so much for supporting him, and I know now he is an Angel in Heaven.

Great man. Will be missed by so many.

To the Harada Family:

My deep condolences to you on the loss of your dear husband, father and family member to others.

I have read what a courageous man he was, an advocate for advancement of science for the benefit of others similarly afflicted. A strong man has a strong family, so I can only imagine how amazing you all are as well.

I also would like to share the mutual nightmare that impacted my family last year. My husband, Jim Nishio was a hard working...

Thank you Ted for being such a wonderful advocate for ALS and stem cell research. You are dearly missed. God bless you.

Don't know where to begin. Ted was an amazing man. We knew each other from many years ago in Lancaster, PA, growing up. We lost touch after graduating, but reconnected in Atlanta - thank you, Facebook. I cherished the times we spent together individually and with our families. I am a better man for knowing Ted and I welcome the day that I can shake his hand once again. Ted - I love you, my brother and my friend. May God and his son Jesus look over and protect your wife Michelle and your three...

Ted was a stem cell pioneer extraordinaire. He left this world a better place. What a wonderful person he was. My deepest sympathy to his family.

I didn't know your husband but I became aware of his story several years ago. He was a courageous and inspiring man who clearly loved his family. He will not be forgotten.

To the Harada family:
My heart is with you in your time of sorrow. Wishing you peace and strength during this difficult time. May you find peace knowing that Ted lives on in the hearts of all he touched including us. Minoo, Melody, Rod, and Mrs. Rad

Our deepest condolescences to the Harada family. Ted was an extraordinary man whose bravery was a true inspiration. We are sending prayers to all of you and will never forget the hero that Ted was to so many.
