  1. To the family of Ted Householder
    Our sympathy, Ted will always be in our memories for his smile wit and friendship. Even the last few years when his health was fading he always greeted us warmly when we came to visit at Northview. Probably our fondest memory is when he and Sally came through a snow storm to visit us in Aurora, CO.
