Shocked and saddened to hear the news.
As a newbie to the forum I was struck by the example that Ted set in terms of critical thought, spreading knowledge and not FUD, and the way he responded to heavyweights and beginners with the same modesty and humility. Like others, I wondered how he could be so active. He gave a lot of himself here and I know that I'm only one of hundreds - probably thousands - who personally benefited greatly from the knowledge that he imparted, but - more than that - the ethics and mindset he imparted.
I will miss his wisdom and contribution to this forum, but hope his spirit will live on here. Respect to Ted, and my respects to his friends and family.
