Sarah, I can see where you got your beauty and definitely your sense of humor, from your mama. I lost my mama 4 years ago and my daddy a year ago, so can share the sadness you are experiencing. Guess the Lord wanted to stop her pain and most of all, was in need of a good angel to bring some laughter to heaven. Your heart will hurt but your loving memories of your mama will ease that hurt.

I just heard the news about Teddy and want to share my condolences with her family. She really made me laugh out loud so many times with her outrageous and spirited sense of humor. My love to her family.

Those with whom you had contact knew a quick wit and intelligence. Yes, you did love dogs; but, I knew you to have a greater love for humanity...not necessarily every human being.

Yes, you will be remembered. Yes, many, including myself, loved you. Yes, you touched alot of lives in a positive way. And, yes, Gov Rick Perry should be forced to undergo a transvaginal probe before being allowed to sign anymore legislation coming out of our 19th century state

I was graced with the honor of sharing the Paramount Theater stage with Teddy during a couple of fundraisers as the bodyguard to her Ann Richards. I have never had so much fun as I did with her during those performances. What a treasure she was and shall remain in my heart. We really had a lot of fun together......

There was only one Teddy.
I graduated from Angleton High School in 1954 withTeddy.
She came to my house several years ago for a class reunion and she and her husbad spent the night with us. We had a great visit I shall never forget. Her attitude so positive and always the same Teddy. My heart goes out to her
family for such a great loss.

Two competing memories, both from Gridiron shows:
1) Wearing Ann Richards' blue suit, size 2, that Ann wore at the Democratic National Convention and reciting Ann's speech about Bush Senior.
2) In a larger skit dancing to Vogue, forgetting her lines because the producer opened the "refreshment" ice chests too soon.

But over all, a beautiful woman with the most infectious laugh.

Hope more Gridiron folk see this and post memories and pictures here and on Facebook.

Sarah and Family, so sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time.

Teddy and I were sweethearts in '53 and '54, before she left Angleton for UT, where she met her first husband, Bob Hale. We enjoyed a long friendship, but I last saw her at a high school reunion. Teddy was a spirited young lady and a barrel of laughs, but compassionate and loving as the need arose. I know she will be sorely missed by her family and friends.
