Condolences left for Theodore C. "Ted" Schanuel:

    Uncle Ted (aka "the other Poppy", as dubbed by my grandson because Ken & Ted look so much alike in his little eyes) holds a special place in my heart. I remember going to their house while relatives all got together to play cards. Fun times! Uncle Ted & Aunt Jan also catered our wedding, which was ever so much appreciated.
    He was always loving toward his family, close and extended, and always acted like it hadn't been years, but days since we'd seen each other. That closeness just never ended.
    Deepest sympathy to all family members on this loss. He fought a good fight, and will be greatly missed.
    Debi (Schanuel) Lindhorst & family

    I am very grateful for the memories given to me by Uncle Ted & Aunt Jan. I remember the New Year's Eve celebrations where we were outside their house on the hill banging pots and pans until we were almost deaf! I always looked forward to being around Uncle Ted and the rest of the uncles. We are thankful that Ted is resting peacefully now, and offer our condolences and prayers to Mark, Melissa and their families. Love you guys!
