Dear Carol and Family, I was sorry to read about Ted's passing. We enjoyed getting to know Ted when we shared the driveway to our houses on Second Street in Faribault. I can still remember him pulling in with his big brown truck - always with a friendly greeting. You are in my thoughts and prayers. May your faith comfort you. Leone Hunter
