“Smrt je preseljenje iz kuće u kuću. To nije nestanak već drugo rođenje. Kao što prsne ljuska jajeta kad se pile potpuno razvije, tako dođe vrijeme da se rastave duša i tijelo. Smrt je nužnost u neizbježnosti prelaska u drugi svijet, u kome čovjek dostiže svoj puni uspon.”
RIP dearest friend, we will miss Ted ... until we see again..

RIP Ted. So sad to hear the news of your passing. Although I never met you in person, it was clear to me you were a good soul. Made clear by all of your efforts to help the animals and environment. You were always there for a friendly chat or just A gif to say "Good Morning."..Have a nice day! It did not go unnoticed my friend. It's a huge loss for our care 2. Thanks for being such an awesome friend to our beloved animals.

Ted has always been a best friend to our beloved animals and a dear friend to me.
I lost my Mom on March 18 and Ted sent me emails and put me and my Mom on a prayer list. I told him how much that meant (means) to me...
I lit a candle and will keep all who loved Ted in my thoughts and prayers.
Thank you for posting Barb.

Thank you, Barb, for sharing this post about Ted Williams. Appreciated. Also, thank you to Angel W. for sharing her (sad) news about Ted because I saw her message before seeing Barb's. I put my own post on FB and my Care2 page for Ted because I didn't know how many of the friends on my list knew him, but at least they could see that if they had visited my page on either site. I feel so bad that I hadn't talked with him for awhile (since February - as I had two serious accidents / I fell twice - that left me in excruciating pain that I wasn't able to be online =much= for quite awhile.) Ted's dedication, especially for animals, was touching, very much appreciated and I know he will be missed by many of us. May he rest in peace... along with his dog, Crissy and his wife, Gayla. Ted had an interesting story to tell - we talked often over the few years I knew him. After his wife passed away, his situation (place he lived at) wasn't so good. I wanted to help, unfortunately, all I could really offer him were prayers. At some point, he was supposed to move and I believe he did. He got a better place to live and I was so happy for him. It was an answered prayer! That was the last time I spoke with/had communications with him. Then, a couple of weeks ago, I was on Care2... going down my friend list... giving out green stars... trying to do the task quickly... and I accidently 'deleted' his profile page from my friend list. However, I didn't discover it until last weekend - which saddened me even more. Today, I lit a candle for him on the link Barb had posted. There is another special place to lit candles for loved ones - it's on: www.thenonprofits.com site. My condolences go out to all of his friends here on Care2 as well. I hope he knew how much people cared about him. I tried to do my best to convey that feeling / message to him as a female 'friend' in the few years I knew him. Ted was a good soul. He will be missed, no doubt. May he finally REST in PEACE. (I did speak with Ted's friend 'Clayton' yesterday (Thursday - April 12th) to let him know that many friends from Care2/FB cared about him so much - I also asked if there would be a funeral or memorial service - but, he said he was running into a lot of red tape because he wasn't a blood relative. So, I don't know what he will be able to do for Ted now.) If any of you know or have an update... please let me know. Thank you.
