    Please accept my sympathy as you mourn Ted’s passing.

    I remember Ted as a frequently smiling and hard-working person to overcome his disability, having had the stroke in his early twenties and a hip fracture (?) later. I was his physical therapist- – in my remembrance, it was at Hillcrest Hospital in the 1990s, but perhaps at Greenville Memorial after that. He was “a trooper”!

    When visiting Ted and delivering cookies for Unity Baptist he was the one who always cheered his visitors. He was an amazing person of great physical and spiritual strength. Prayers for family.
