Mom came home from work today and told me that Ted had died. Little background here, Ted lived with my mom and sisters for a few years around 1997-1999? I am not exactly sure on the dates as I wasn’t there much, but I know he was a great guy and I know that both my sisters loved him a lot. Especially my older sister Erin, I am pretty sure that growing up Ted was the only boyfriend of Moms that Erin liked, and they remained close even after mom and ted broke up.
I didn’t really know him very well, but I am sad he is gone. Sad for my family and his. The funeral was nice and Mom and Erin got to talk to a lot of his friends and family they knew.
For me the good thing to come of this was that Erin flew out to Moms for the funeral, and it had been well over a year since I seen her. It was good to see her, and we even got to go to one of Tessa’s orchestra concerts. Its nice to get together as a family even if it only happens at funerals.
