Ted was a talented and sincere man. His personality shined. He always made time for us. We enjoyed his orchestra at our wedding in the Starlight Roof of the Doral Beach Hotel in '71, fathers' 70th and 80th birthday celebrations in the '80's, Jeff's parents' 50th anniversary in '90 and, of course, at many charity events through the years. Our sincere condolences to his family.
