I loved my dad and hopefully this website will make sure some of his memoryand messages are able to live on. I found myself in a rush to get them all posted by the time of the tenth anniversary of his death in May 2014. A big thank you to all who meant so much to my dad and our family. THANK YOU!
This endeavor came as a complete surprise to me. Your hard work and loving attention to so much of your dad's life will be appreciated by many that loved him. This collection is a fine tribute to Ted and demonstrates what a remarkable son you are. We can be grateful for the time we all shared together. Thank you from your loving mother.
Such a wonderful tribute and representation of Ted. Truly he was an intellectual with a loving heart. His life story is a testimony to God's faithfulness and unconditional love. Thank you for sharing the very essence of Ted's life, his love for his family, and his legacy for future generations. Sent with sweet memories and love, Aunt Gail.
Ted was a great friend, pastor, and the best "boss" I ever had.
May heaven enjoy his presence.
This is a true labor of love and such a treasure to so many who cared about your dad. Thinking of you all today. I know he's rocking out to some Dylan up in the clouds.
I originally found myself at OPC due to a Grief Counseling Group. It was here that I first met Ted. Because of his kind and caring way and his respect for others, I joined OPC. I had not attended a formal church service in over thirty years and felt compelled to be in his presence and learn from him. He was also a great boss since not too long after I became one of the secretary's along with Ann. What an awesome period in my life. Thank you, Ted. I learned alot.
Thanks for creating this tribute to Ted. We were seminary classmates at Princeton and worked together in the kitchen of the Dining Hall to help put our way through seminary. I am deeply touched by his pastoral sensibilities and his testimony of faith as he faced the end of this life.
Rev. Atkinson had such a kind and gentle spirit. He said that he always remembered names and every time that he saw my husband Kevin and I, he would always say our names and one of the last times that I saw him, I had cut my hair and he noticed. He is dearly missed by OPC & SPC as well, His spirit will always live on through those that he has touched...
