It’s amazing how one man can emit such greatness and strength. As an employee at Bombardier Aerospace in the I.T. department I met Ted while doing my daily activities, as he would place support calls to the helpdesk regarding issues with his computer.
I remembered the first them I met him, he was extremely soft spoken, polite and respectful. I am not sure if anyone here at work has ever seen Ted upset, I certainly haven’t.
I am somewhat of an observer that likes to be behind the scene, one who rarely has comments pertaining to any situation; In this case I have to make and exception. Ted, it was a pleasure working with you and getting to know you. You will certainly be missed as the world has much to lean from you.
This is a poem I wrote:
A GENTLE SOUL
In our dreams
In our thoughts
In our minds and hearts you will always be
When I think of beauty
I think of you
So positive, so enlightening
If I saw a smile that shines on the world
Ted owns that smile
The sun gave us daytime
The moon gave us nighttimes
And TED, your smile gave us happiness
As we see a rose in the springtime
The road to heaven is paved with gold
TED, take your place in the arms of God
You will certainly be missed…
