Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time and please know that the Family of Martha and Dale Critzman wish Ted's family the best of memories and remembrances. Martha and Dale always loved to travel to Michigan to spend time with Ted and Lil and to have them visit them in Wisconsin. Those were the "good ol' days".

Aunt Lil and Family, I am so sorry to hear of Uncle Ted's passing but I know he is with his Savior. Never was there a time when Uncle Ted did not know who I was and always called me by my name. That was something that always amazed me about him. Please know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers. Love, Patty & Jim Wiggers
