I tried to call him, and we both would have a laugh, I called a couple of times a year where we would talk and laugh at the many instances we shared together. The time we travelled to Cedar Rapids, Iowa to see a carburetor, through Chicago, and there seeing Al Capones Apartment house in Cicero, Ill. And Ted, was in a big cast with crutches from a previous injury, I always wondered if the cast and crutches was a scam to relieve him from sharing the driving. (You know that's only in humour.) When I tried to call him today, I found his # not in service, I suspected this and checked it out to find this, I'm sincerely SORRY. BYEBYE
Heartfelt condolences. Your father was not only my Uncle but my godfather and he will be missed. Both Darryl and myself loved his dry sense of humour. Sending you my thoughts and prayers. Love, Judy
