What a marvelous voice Teddy had. Considering his condition after the auto accident, it's surprising he lived this long. And since he contracted cancer last year, it became less likely he could survive much longer.

He was an amazing example of courage. Having been a very active person, then even being paralyzed from the waist down he kept going on and working and didn't become sorry for himself.

The section of the Wissahickon Drive on which he had his accident is extremely twisty-turny, and especially dangerous when wet. There are more than 100 accidents there every year due to excessive speed for the turns. People think they can drive much faster there than they really can.

How very sad. I so enjoy listening to all the R&B singers and groups from the 70's...
