    Ted was always a pleasure to be around.
    He was a very well read and traveled man who was always anxious to engage me about my latest flight and to what Country I had flown to.
    I will miss him, the world lost another good person.
    Peggy, Brent, please know our thoughts and sympathies are with you.
