My Friend Ted

Brittany Wilson 1988 (Milwaukee, WI)



I had a friend named Ted who sold beds online, he pitched a sales goal & hit it on its head, he celebrated without boasting, gave himself a toast & has 10 stores with all his merchandise online.

He bled & bled for the business through & through like any human being of his caliber should, he led by example & never by sight, his plight in his fight showed with his number of sales.

Ted was the greatest friend I ever had, not a day goes by that I don’t think of his smiling face all my life long, he was a bad man when it came to selling bedroom sets, but he was the best samaritan whether it counted or not.
I’m gonna miss him. Goodbye Ted!!!
