Very nice eulogy you just gave. My condolences, I'm sure you feel a great loss and lots of pain.
Nice picture. Ted was definitely up to his keester in work and lumber.
May he rest in peace.
, my working buddy and business partner for the last 2 (and many various times before) died unexpectedly last night. He was 54. COD unknown at this point. I've just come in from the bar where I've been sitting with his common-law wife. She is in a real state. Nothing more I can do for her tonight.
I think he was trying to do too much all at one time and playing the tough guy, too. He recently imposed discipline and turned himself over to the IRS for back-taxes. He "embodied" with AA and with Jesus, and gave up his evil ways. At about the same time he signed up with county health and had 8 teeth pulled AND went on hepatitis C treatment. Now I did the interferon myself and let me tell you, it ain't no damn picnic. Pile on top of that, an unfamiliar mouth-scape, AND a panic situation for our boss and the tenets we're building for! Well, I don't know. He called us Diligent Construction. I smiled at that. In the last 3 weeks he built, single-handily, (and I mean BY HIMSELF) 56 feet of lower cabinets w/doors and drawers, including a check-out counter, and 44 feet of upper shelves. A remarkable lot of production for even the best, at their best. He always demanded a mighty lot from himself. (And everybody around him, too. The SOB!) We were inches from finishing.
God? We send you Ted. Try not to piss him off.
Rest in peace, Ted.
