    For all of us who loved Ted our hearts are broken. Teddy (Bob) was the best cousin, friend and second brother to me ever! We spent hours together at Grandmother Best’s house and Bonnie’s house when I lived in Frankfort and every summer when I came to visit. So many “adventures” with Susan Michael, Ted and me – just wish we had kept in touch more in later years. Thinking of you dear Ted with love. You will always be in my heart!💕

    So sorry to hear about the passing of Ted. I worked with him for many years at Jaggers. He always had a smile on his face and would try to lighten the mood on the rough days. I know he’s finally made the cut for the JC Penny catalog as a model! He will be missed.

    Gone but not forgotten, safe in the arms of Jesus. Sure will miss him, was one awesome person.
