What I remember most about Ted, he was always willing to help. From when I first met him, he helped me changed the brakes on my car, to one of the last times he helped me buy my new house. He always had big dreams, and he always acted on them, from starting a business or inventing a Kite with LED lights, he wasn't afraid to do anything. I will miss you...
