I know the pattern is always related to Alice in some way so why is this called Ted's? Several years ago (before Alice's Embrace was even a blip in my mind) I made our dear friend, Ted, a prayer shawl. He is suffering from a dementia related illness. Ted is one distinguished gentleman. He is always so easy going and just very pleasant to be around.
During my mom's final months, his beautiful wife, Judi, came to visit my mom. Judi is like no one you will ever meet and if you are lucky enough to meet her, you will never forget her. She is a kind, warm and sincere person. She makes you feel like an old pal the minute you meet her. Judi had to meet my mom. She told me that she had to meet the person who gave birth to me and who raised me and who I loved so dearly. She visited with my mom at The Meadows and held her hands and talked so sweetly to her. I will remember that day for the rest of my life.
Sadly, on Wednesday, August 10, 2016, Judi lost her Teddy. Their love was a one-in-a-million love. We will miss this dear, sweet man always. Rest in peace, Ted.
