The family would like to thank Drs. Ford, Aaberg, Fredrickson, Carvajal, Sobolevsky, Chen, his guardian angels in Michigan and New York for their wonderful care of Teddie. The family will greet visitors on Sunday from 3 - 7 pm at Stroo Funeral Home. The funeral service will be held 10:10 am on Monday, January 7, at Alger Park Christian Reformed Church, 2655 Eastern Ave. SE, with Rev. Ecko DeVries and Rev. Sam Gutierrez officiating.
