Was so very sorry to hear this news about Uncle Ted. I know Uncle Dave credits his delicious BBQ sauce to him. You are all in my heart and thoughts during this time.

So much to say my brother was an amazing man. Our parents taught us to be kind, truthful. We went in the service together. As we grew we went separate ways. Living so far from each other, but will always carry the memories we made with each other. Harold

My brother in law was a good man. Welcomed me into the McClure family. So much knowledge about everything. Thank you for being so kind. I love his family Donna and the boys. Yes they are grown men. Know we love you all Patty
