Trudi Theisen says
For Barb Connell.
We just learned of Ted’s Death and want to offer our sympathy. Ted was a dear man, so kind and helpful when we came to Arizona for the Winter. We still maintain our home here in Wisconsin and did not get to AZ because of Bob’s health. He has had heart surgery with 4 stents in his heart, followed by a pacemaker. He is very forgetful and doesn’t remember from one moment to the next. His long term memory is strong so he kind of lives in the past, thus I must always watch. Have taken away the car keys and try to keep him as happy as I can. He is not steady on his feet, soI make sure he has his car because he does not want to use a walker.
Our sympathy, Trudi & Bob
