"Dear Family of Ted Gibson; We are sorry that we can't attend to honor your dad. Dave and I are both recovering from Covid and unable to attend. Dave worked with Ted for many years at Kodak. He was a good person, liked by all, as was your mom too! (We are the couple that you took a video of at Vernetta's wake to show Ted when you got home)
Love and sympathy to you and your family, Dave and Jackie Teather."
"Mr. Ted Gibson was a great next-door neighbor, and he and his wonderful wife Vernetta raised three awesome kids who made our neighborhood a better place to live. Me and my family miss Ted and Vernetta very much. -Ray Moranz, Stillwater, OK (but formerly of Pittsford, NY). "
