Ted found great joy in gardening. Ted and Ann's garden was featured on the Midwest Hosta Convention Tour just last summer. Ted was very proud of their collection of Russ O'Hara hostas. Their garden was lovely reflecting Ted's admiration of nature.
For years, I ran into Ted and Ann at every garden-related event I attended. It got to be a fun joke. I'd say, "I wonder if Ann and Ted will be there". I always looked forward to seeing them. Usually they were volunteering, helping out with the event.
Ted will be missed. He really made a difference in many lives in so many ways. Thankfully, Ted is at peace now. Heaven most surely is a lovely, (Rosh Gold)tranquil garden. Condolences to Ann and family.
