We are so saddened to hear the news of Ted's passing, our deepest sympathies to all of you. We have such wonderful memories growing up of Ted, his passion for weekend activities to get us out, such as ice skating, skiing, racket ball and visiting museums. His love of photography, which got us involved in setting up our own dark rooms and developing our own film. But more than that, his joy for life, especially given all the suffering and pain he endured during the Holocost. May his memory be a blessing. Our love, thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Love, John, Laura and Raine (Jean) & our families
