I will always remember Teddy, From the first time I met him, until the last, time I saw him. He was always a friend to me, and I Always looked forward to going down to pownal, to his place. Many of those times he would call me on the phone, and say, come on down, I will fire up the stove, out in the shed. And several times if the hour was late, he would say sleep on the couch, if you want....It might be safer than to try to make it back to Bennington. He was so full of good humor, that I knew he was going to say a lot of funny things....and we would laugh a lot ! I will greatly miss Ole Teddy, and will always hope to see him again one day. God Bless his Wife, and Sons and Daughters,,, and all his Friends.

Ted Bourn was a gentle man, dependable and trustworthy. I looked forward to his visits to my house and our long discussions on topics we had in common, particularly growing older and parenting sons. To Josh and his sons, I commend their father's quiet strength and to Feruza, my deep sympathy.
