    Dear Phyllis, John and I are very sad that Ted has left us all...I am sure you must be feeling helpless without your travel companion by your side. You both enjoyed so many adventures and I will always remember him when Timbuktoo is mentioned. Thinking of you...fondest best wishes Jill Kelly for us both
