|Marie,Kathy,Karen and family. I am saddened to
hear about Ted. He was a really good man who did
his best to brighten the day of everyone he came
in contact with. We loved to visit you guys and
talk about old times, and sometimes Ted had a lot
to say and sometimes he didn't, but you always
knew he was listening to each word. I wish we
could come in, but distance is too large a factor,
but please know you are in our hearts and prayers.
Love, Bill & Mary & Jennifer and Adam.|

|Marie, Kathy & Karen it's with a sad heart that I
say too you, You have more to go to heaven for than
you had yesterday.Didn't know of Ted singing in
this life but now he can sing songs that the angels
in heaven can't sang. If we begged Ted to come back
to us and if he could, he would tell us no,I have a
new body and there is no pain and I've seen the
face of Jesus and my loved ones too. We will be
praying for God to hold your sweet family very near
him. Blessings to each of you . The Coggins|
