I am saddened to learn of Ted’s passing, and wish for his wonderful family God’s blessings during this difficult time. I am grateful for knowing Ted, for the positive influence he had on me, and for including me on some fabulous fishing trips to Lake Okeechobee and Uncle Joe’s Fish Camp, a place he dearly loved. My prayers will continue for all of you.
