Glad you had a long life and thanks for your service. Sorry for the shat show you had to see the country become. Once the orange is gone we’ll return to better days.

Thanks Mr Ted for your long service to our country and our local area. So pleased you were able to keep the rest of us on our toes for so long

Prayers for your family. So sorry the current times have prevented folks from being able to share our memories with you, tough I’m certain you have so many of your own

It has been many years since I remember him offering his kind smile as he and my father puzzled out some mechanical or tool mystery. I imagine all the many folks we’ve lost from their generation with their heads together working on their next project

Greatly missed and not forgotten!
