I would like to express my deepest sorrow for the lost of your dear loved one. The pain and the feelings of helplessness can seem unbearable. At such times, we need to go to Gods word for comfort. Please take your Bible and look at what God promises for the future with regard to our dead loved ones. ( John 5:28,29, Acts 24:15) Yes, God really will defeat our enemy death forever. This will enable us to one day have the hope of seeing our dead loved ones again. I hope this message will be a source of comfort to you. If you have any questions feel free to contact one of Jehovah's Witnesses or log on to our website at JW.org. Sincerely yours, JW

I'm truly sorry for your family's loss. Revelation 21:4 promises a time when we won't lose our loved ones in death.

Dear Orner Family, We are so very sorry to learn of Ted's passing. I worked with Ted at Russell Reynolds and have shared some photos taken at his retirement party. Ted was a wonderful, caring, man and a true example of righteous living. May God's love comfort you during this difficult time. Jean & Joe Garrett

I am sad to learn today, of Ted's passing, and yet I smile because I feel blessed to have known him for a short time, through the MG Houston community. Linda and family, our prayers go with you all, in this time of transition. We will always know Ted for his wonderful attentiveness, excellent communication, and radiant smile. I will look forward to seeing him again one day!

Dearest Linda, Penni & Jennifer and families, My sincere condolences at this time for your loss. It has truly be my honor to have known Ted and to have witnessed God's presence in and through the life he lived. His love for you and others can't be measured. He always spoke of his family with love, respect and joy. I shall always remember him for his smile, his positivity, his peace through all his trials and his never failing faith. May our Lord provide you with strength, peace and the reassurance that we will all see him again. Love, Lyna K. Lee

Linda and Family, We were sad to learn of Ted's death today. He was such a fine fellow and such a committed Christian. You both treated us so kindly during the Kingwood years and we have fond memories of those days. We wish God's greatest blessings for you through this time and pray for your lives as you transition to living without him for awhile. Wishing you a deep peace in Christ until Jesus comes or calls, Charles & Arlene

Ted Arnold Orner went to his heavenly home on Saturday, October 15, 2016.
To know Ted was to love Ted, as you know since you are here. Ted’s contagious smile, warm laughter and true interest in everyone he met showed God’s love to all. Ted was born in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and he met the love of his life, Linda, in dance class when he was only six years old. They became high school sweethearts and married in 1963 at the age of 20. He loved her until the day that he died, fulfilling his vow that only death would separate them.
Ted and Linda have two beautiful daughters, Penni and Jennifer Arianna, who they raised in Indianapolis, Kalamazoo, New Orleans and Houston. They enjoyed competitive swimming, travelling to Mexican beaches, and playing board games, especially Monopoly, together. Their greatest joys were multiplied when their grandchildren, Naveed, Alessia, and Cheyenne were born, each one so cherished and loved. Their recent family trip to Mexico was enjoyed by all as they hilariously laughed at the beach together, loving the warm culture and excellent food during their special time with each other. The only thing missing was sweet Oreo who brought Ted much joy.
Ted earned an undergraduate degree in 1964 in civil engineering, and then a Master’s Degree in Business Management in 1965, both from Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Upon graduation, Ted worked for Shell Pipeline and later the Shell Oil Company. He was passionate about his work as an executive recruiter for Russell Reynolds Associates. In 1999 he moved to Colorado Springs, Colorado, where he and Linda eventually retired and made life-long friends. They moved back permanently to Houston in June 2015, and were blessed by finding a beautiful building to live in with new life-long friends that they enjoyed talking with daily in the hallways, elevators, garage, front desk and dog park.
Ted´s faith in Jesus Christ was evident to all who met him, whether he used words to express it or not. He had heard about Jesus from the time he was a child, but when he was 30 years old he understood the truth that Jesus died for him personally, paying the price for all of his past, present and future sins, and that by believing in Jesus, he could have peace with God. Ted trusted in Jesus as his Savior that day, and his life was changed. He became a very gifted Bible teacher, teaching in Bible studies, Sunday School and in prison ministries. He loved his family, loved people, and he loved the Lord. We know that He is face to face with Jesus now as he has crossed over from death to life. This was Ted´s faith, and it was his desire that it be yours.
“Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.” - Jesus speaking in John 5:24

Visitation with the family will be held Friday, October 21, at 5:30pm, at Bradshaw-Carter Funeral Home, 1734 West Alabama Street, Houston, followed by a Celebration of his life and faith at 6:00pm. In lieu of flowers, a contribution can be made to the International Justice Mission, www.ijm.org.
