He was the life of the party and everyone knew when he entered the room. His booming voice was more than enough to bring a smile to your face. He was crazy and loving and very generous. He loved being able to help and give to others; it brought joy to him to see others feel thankful and blessed. He had a big heart. He was larger than life. He was invincible and it is hard to believe he has left us. He shined so brightly with us here, and though the light has been dimmed for us, he continues to shine bright in Heaven. Watching over us, he wouldn\’t want grief and heart-break, but instead to look forward to seeing him again. He held a living memorial before he got too sick, in place of services. He wanted to celebrate his life. He wanted us to all be happy remembering him, rather than crying over losing him. So, until we meet him in Heaven, he would want us to raise a glass to him and pieces of himself that he shared with us all.   Survived By: Daughter – Sealy Teague, and husband Nathan.
