At my dad’s 77th birthday party, Ted Scarabin (October 7, 1966 – July 7, 2022 ) shares a story where he had conflict with a neighbor over loud music when he worked overnights. I share a passed from Horace Bergeron story about Ted’s maternal grandfather Mathew buying a dog at a bar in the 1950-60s. At the very end,  Janie Eva Franicevich Scarabin says a few words and then a tiny little clip of Theodore August “Teddy” Scarabin.
