- We are so sorry for your loss. I meet Ted down in Orange Beach. At the time I was surprise he knew where P. Hill was at. Then to my surprise he said he was a surveyor. I asked him if he knew my great-granddad Lou Galloway. Ted told me about times stopping by grandpa's asking about surviving markers. I will miss our visits as I know you all will too. Ted was a wonderful man.
