    The first time I met Ted was in April/May of ’72. That was at Mid-Tenn Ford Truck Sales. It was for a job interview for a driver (gofar-thisorthat) position in the parts department. I had been out of the military for about 6 months and got referred down there by the then service manager that knew I was looking to do something other than work contruction which I had been doing since I got out of the military.
    The last time I spoke/saw Ted was at the “gun show” at the fairgrounds. He was there with one of his many friends. He had gained alot of weight. At first I didn’t reconize him. In talking I told him that I have dreams about Mid-Tenn and he replied that those were really “nightmares” I was having.
    He will ALWAYS be in my memory!!!!
