My Uncle Ted

By Terri (Wade) Bonow

Daughter of Virginia Walker who was Ted’s older sister

June 2, 2015

Tall with a long stride, bright smile, hearty laugh, and jolly mood

Uncle Ted came and went at different times in my life, he was always on the move.

As a Walker family man, survivor of hardships as a child,

He was full of stories of adventures and always remembered the bible.

His Jehovah’s faith took him traveling to many places such as –

The near and far: Oregon, Alaska, Arizona, Mexico and Honduras.

He visited me on the Greyhound bus in Texas on one occasion.

Ted was dedicated to his sweet daughters who have brilliant smiles and abilities

His handsome smile is seen in their faces.

His beautiful grandchildren live on with his legacy.

Wife Elisa was an amazing support and his true love

Only God knows how much he was adored.

Respected and remembered Uncle Ted reflects our human family

With our unique mortal struggles, searches for peace and spiritual serenity.

May Uncle Ted rest in peace, and in his memory let’s make love grow endlessly.
