  1. Dear Cindy and family: I just heard about your dad’s passing. I had been thinking about him the past year – what a fun-loving and compassionate man. I have many fond memories of both your parents and dinners together on Southview Avenue. My parents send their condolences and of course my dad had a funny story to share about Ted. He was a good and loyal friend to my parents. I’m very sorry for your loss.
