    Our thoughts are with you at this time. We are sorry for your loss, Ted was a good man. I remember him painting the interior of one of the trailers at the Tiny Holden Brownie Camp. Take care of yourself and your family.

    My thoughts are with your family my memories are of when Ted and I were teenagers and early twenties, my first good good feeling was when he bought my first furniture when I first moved to Calgary.He was so good to me in those days. Please know that I am thinking about you.

    Jimmie and Family, We are very sad to hear of Teds passing. Bugs and Ted had a passion for Willys and spent many hours working and talking about them. We are sure thinking about you, at this sad and difficult time.
