Ode to Ted

fullsizerender-14

 

Family jam moment on the house piano at the Arment’s last night was a real hit. This made me miss Ted more than anything has.. this moment would have made him bellow with praise; his girls working together making music, laughing and sounding angelic. Jesus I would have loved to hear his description of this performance. Ted was the engineer who described nearly all things in life with engineering terms… the one that comes to mind was him frustrated with his neighbor’s hen attacking one of his chickens.. “that mother fucker is disassembling my rooster”.

Miss you Ted. This is only one of many simple moments that I wish you could have seen in person and described for us with your amazing honesty.

And yes.. in case you’re wondering I have audio of the girls singing.. no you can’t hear it. I’m holding onto it for something special.

 

 

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don’t forget me, I beg
I’ll remember you said,
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead,
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead”

You know how the time flies
Only yesterday was the time of our lives
We were born and raised
In a summer haze
Bound by the surprise of our glory days

 

Nothing compares
No worries or cares
Regrets and mistakes
They are memories made.
Who would have known how bittersweet this would taste?

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you
Don’t forget me, I beg
I’ll remember you said,
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead”.
