I remember all the wonderful times that all the "BOYS" were able to get together and golf. I especially remember the Western Open at Olympia Fields, meeting all the golfers and having a great time together. Teddy was a quiet brother, very pleasant, and a family first man. Although we did not get together as often as we would have liked, I will always remember his calm, peaceful ways. Tom and Joe, I hope that you find peace in his life and his death. Dr. Seuss said " Don't cry because it ended, smile because it happened", and this gives us opportunity to smile. Love, Uncle Bill
