Dear Betty and your terrific family,
It is with deep sadness I received your call informing me of Ted's passing. Bill and Ted were born in the same year and now with both of them gone that only leaves one remaining of the ten men crew. And that would be Marv Schefrin. I remember so well our first meeting in New Orleans and how happy they all were to be reunited after more than fifty years. We wives were awfully proud of their service and they really were members of the "Greatest Generation." Bill and I enjoyed all of the crew reunions we attended but especially the one in Sparks because there was so much to see including Reno and Lake Tahoe and then we went on to see Yosemite. But probably the best of all were the deep friendships made with our crew families. I cherish the times we spent together at all the reunions. Betty dear stay well and strong, I know with first hand experience there will be lonely, sad days but it does get a little easier with time. You had a great marriage and a wonderful family and they'll be there to ease the way. I'll be thinking of you all on Saturday at the Memorial Service at the Methodist Church and on Monday at the military burial. God bless you all. Jane
