My deepest sympathy to the family of Teddy. He and my brother Steve could empathize with each other during their last days. They can continue to coffee in that home in the beyond..

He was a good neighbor to have. I remember quite a few early mornings after we would get our water set we would lean on a pickup truck box and have a quick chat. My condolences to Bev and the family.
