    I can still remember my Dad, Fred Gill, and Teddy fishing in the lake at Camp of the Woods. Upstate New York. They rowed out from the lake shore and had a great time fishing…….until some swallows started to dive bomb and peck at their heads. What wonderful memories of two wonderful men. My Dad and Uncle Teddy. ❤️

    My Mom, Alice Gill told me she feels bad she cannot make the trip to South Carolina. Her feelings for her brother Ted ran deeply and loved him very much. I know Carol, Mary, and Delores felt the same. Many wonderful memories were shared with Teddy and Anna over the years. ❤️ God bless you all.

    Honoring Uncle Ted. So sad to hear of Uncle Ted. I think of Camp of the Woods just like Gerald Gill said. Uncle Ted taught me how to fish at Camp of the Woods. Also Uncle Ted used to take me fishing or to muesiums etc. on Staurdays. I used to call him Uncle Saturday because the way he said Saturday ” Sad- dee’ ” Uncle Ted had us in stiches laughting with his practical jokes. Uncle Ted Showed me how to make Pizza, even. He aalso taught me about honest and being a good christian
    So many good memories of Uncle Ted.
    Aunt Anna, Mark and Debbie so sorry for your loss. Everyboby loved Uncle Ted so did Marcelle and I.
