Dearest Ones, may the peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be in you and comfort you in this sad time.our sincere condolences. It's sad for me too, to be so far away and I was so saddened to hear of Amy's sudden passing. It seems like just last week I was visiting you in Camden, and we have memories even going back earlier when you lived in that sweet little town a bit further north as I recall. Such lovely surroundings, " God's Garden Spot" as you called it; you shared together, Teddy, as you shared your special lives, such busy lives. I'll always remember and treasure Amy's warmth and good humor. No one was a stranger to her. I wish I could be there with you for the service when things open least you know I'm with you in spirit. We're sending Love and hugs to all your children, too, as well as you, my dearest Teddy; Amy Rebecca, and dear family, Eddy and Lauren and your dear ones, and Frank and Lisa and your beautiful children. You're all in our prayers, as you always have been, every night for years. XXOO.
