Date Honored: June 2004
What made our loved one special. . .
Tony – The time they went to the reservoir and watched the sun rise. Weekends with Grandpa. The tomatoes they shared together. And all the little trips to the stores they took.
Harley – My brother…I miss you more than ever, we are all okay and we will see you again. Thanks for watching over me and always being there for me.
Friends – Ted was a wonderful, sweet, thoughtful, kind, and generous man, and a friend to all that knew him. Ted’s dedication to music. His positive attitude that made the string ring true. A true “picker.”
Ariana – The way you always made me laugh and how fun you were to be around.
Brittany – Our many trips hiking up mountains and our trips to see the John B. Parks train set.
Allan Jr. – The time you took me up on Pikes Peak and I got to see snow for the first time.
Tom – Ted was the best friend I ever had. It was a privilege and honor to have known him. I have a lifetime of memories from the short time we were friends. Hiking up his mountain, Pikes Peak, and fishing. I will never forget him.
Children – The way he always learned everybody’s first names…which was evident at the memorial service the Broadmoor gave him. His Wal-Mart runs on Saturdays. The passion he had for the Farmers’ Market. The time he enjoyed spending with his friends. The way he considered us his children…not his step-children. The way he started every letter and card to our mother which was, “To my Rita.” A humorous memory would be the time he tripped over Sharon’s cat and fell flat on his butt. And to this day we’re not sure if it was the cat or the beer. The way he always helped out with Tony…even at 4 in the morning. So in closing…in the words that Ted always said, “Bicycle and make it a fine day!”
