Ann, Judy and Genia: I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I know firsthand how hard it is to lose someone you love so much. Although I haven't seen you guys for years, you will always be a big part of the childhood I remember in Elkview. Great memories and great friends ...

Judy and Genie, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your father. I still remember all the great times we had growing up and even when your dad was a young minister. I can't say I know how you feel cause I am fortunate to still have my parents but it is should be comforting to you and your family that you will see your dad again at the resurrection. May God bless all of your family. Steve Dodd

I am so sorry for your loss. Uncle Ted was an amazing man that touched so many lives while he was "running the race." I know his race is over and he is at peace. However, his legacy will live on forever. I remember the times I got to spend with him and how his always spoke of God and his love for Jesus. One of the most special moments was when he baptized my brother Doug. Dougie love him so much and would have no one else do it. That moment will stay with me forever. Uncle Ted was a servant to his family, his country, and his God. Always giving. He always has and always will be an example of what a Godly man looks like to me. I am so proud to be a Tawney and carry on the same name as this great man. I love all of you and my thoughts and prayers are with you. Love, Joel

Ann, Please know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers, I am very sorry to hear of your great loss. Mr. Tawney was a great great man, and I am so touched to have known him for his great smile, and awesome personality. Mom always told me, every time he would come to his Dr. Appt, " How's My Girl " That meant alot to me, that I had such an impact on him. I am going to miss him greatly. If you need anything at all, please call me and I will do my very best to help you. I will also have a very special place for Mr. Tawney in my Wedding, I know I just spoke with him a few weeks ago regarding marrying me and my fiance, he will definately be with me and my family in spirit, and will always have a special place in my heart :) God Bless You In This Trying Time Ann, Courtney Carpenter (From Rite Aid)

Ann and all of the Family: You all are in our thoughts and prayers. Ted was an amazing man, David and I always looked to him for guidance over the years and we feel so blessed to have had him in our lives. I have known the family all of my life pretty much. Ted married David and I at Blue Creek Church, he baptized me and showed me time after time how life as a Christian should be. One of my memories of him I hold dear to my heart is the night before I was scheduled to have Jacob , our first son, Ted , Ann, David and I held hands in a circle at their house and prayed for a safe delivery and a healthy baby. That meant the world to us to know we have such loving, kind, caring people like that our life. When I had Jonah our second son, I went into labor in the early hours and so at 4:00 a.m. or so Ted and Ann were on the phone with my mom as I am in labor and again praying for me and for our baby. I felt those prayers, I had two easy deliveries and delivered two big healthy baby boys, I know it’s because of the prayers that were being answered. I have so many memories of Ted but one that everyone can share and relate to is his one of a kind, warm smile. He loved to laugh and made us laugh at times until we were in tears. Ted has always been such a wonderful, positive influence on my life and I will hold dearly to my memories and my pictures from over the years I have of him. One picture specifically is from about two weeks ago at Ted and Ann’s house, one of Ted holding Jonah and they are looking into one another’s eyes and smiling the biggest smiles. Jonah is only eight months old right now but one day, David , Jacob and I will get to explain to him how special the man holding him is. Jacob is five years old and so he understands how special Ted is and told me he would help David and I take extra special care of Ann and help her with anything she needs he said in quote “Because I love Ted and Ann” and " I am really going to miss Ted" I am in tears right now trying to summarize only a small fraction of what Ted meant to me and to my little family and our lives. I truly feel blessed to have been given the opportunity to share some of the most precious, big “life experiences” with such an amazing person over the years. Ann please remember David and I are always just a phone call away, or a walk down the road if you ever need us. We love you! Love, David, Brandi, Jacob and Jonah Carte
