It has taken me a while to write about it but here goes...A call came in on my cell on a hot Friday morning. It was a call from a former co-worker. He called to say a mutual friend had died the night before. It did not register for a while because my mind did not want to accept the fact someone I had known and worked with for 10+ years had passed. Ted was a couple of years older but our kids were the same age. This was a sudden and unexpected passing. I have a lot of great memories of traveling with Ted to octoberfest in Munich Germany a few years back with a great group of guys. I have fond memories of grabbing a beer and listening to him tell a story and laughing til my sides hurt.
There is an fundraiser event coming up in October for his family. Details will be following soon that I will post here. The fundraiser will be in Milwaukee and will be a tailgate event during a Packer game. It sounds to be the perfect way to remember Ted and to raise money for the family.
Cheers to Ted and all the great memories you have left us with.
