Dear Mrs. Grant,
I don’t know if you remember me but I was the therapist from PHC that came out to see Ted on 2-3 occasions. I was so very sorry to hear of his death. Please extend my sympathy to Cindy, Bonnie and the rest of the family. I thought alot of Ted and he was always so sweet. It was always a pleasure to visit. He always tried hard with his therapy. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Take Care.
With Love, Dawn
