Eric, I am so very sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

To the Schanzer family, I send you my condolences for your loss. The good man Job in the Bible once asked this question. "If an able-bodied man dies, can he live again? Notice the answer in verse 15. Job said, "You will call, and I myself shall answer you. "For the work of your hands you will have a yearning. Yes, Job knew that his loving heavenly father desires life for all of his servants, and that if he died, Job knew that God would restore his life back to him. So we can have the same wonderful hope of knowing that God will bring our loved ones back to life. With God, all things are possible. May that wonderful hope bring joy to your hearts, and help you to endure in the days ahead.

For the family of Ted my condolences for your loss. I had the privilege of working with Ted at Sears. He was a true gentleman and respected by all his fellow coworkers....

Eric, we loved your dad. We will miss his smile and outgoing ways. He was a blessing to all who knew him. We are in California, but we are thinking of you.

I am truly sorry to hear of Ted's passing! My mother (Carrie Ragland) worked for him when he managed the Kay Bee Clothing Store in the early 60's until she had a stroke. She always looked forward to the many visits Ted would make to our house prior to her death and greatly appreciated his friendship. After Ted joined the Sear's Team we would often meet for a few minutes to catch up on the old days! Your dad was a true gentleman and will be missed by many. I have only seen Ted once since moving to Colorado in 1977, but spent several hours during that trip to Virginia over coffee and old times. May God be with him and your family during this great time of sadness.

DEAR ERIC, HELENE, EVERETT, MYRNA, AND OTHER RELATIVES AND DEAR FRIENDS OF TED, AT THIS VERY SAD TIME MY MOM AND I OFFER YOU AND YOUR LOVED ONES OUR DEEPEST SYMPATHIES AND REALIZE THAT THOUGH YOUR DAD AND LOVING RELATIVE AND FRIEND LIVED A LONG AND FULL LIFE, THERE IS STILL A VOID IN ALL OF YOUR HEARTS. ERIC, THERE IS NO DOUBT IN MY MIND THAT YOUR DAD LIVED THE QUALITY KIND OF LIFE IN HIS LAST YEARS DUE TO YOUR DEVOTION AND SPECIAL CARE WHICH YOU PROVIDED FOR HIM. YOU ARE THE REASON FOR HIS LIVING AS LONG AS HE DID AND YOUR EXAMPLE IS ONE THAT SHOULD BE FOLLOWED BY ALL OF US WHO ARE SONS AND DAUGHTERS. MAY HIS MEMORY ALWAYS BE FOR A BLESSING AND MAY YOU FIND PEACE AND COMFORT KNOWING THAT YOU GAVE YOUR DAD THE VERY BEST THAT YOU HAD. ERIC YOU ARE A TREASURED FRIEND TO ME AND TO SO MANY. WARMLY, ED
