I am a Veteran.Ted L. Dockery Guestbook

Tammy Trotter Chancellor


Heaven gained a precious man. I was a student at Wilson ISD for 12 of those 20 years he was a principal. He was always willing to listen and encourage any student that needed it. I just like sitting and talking with him when I was in High School (I always asked to the the elementary student helper). He helped me personally with some of my own teenage issue. The man had a lot of wisdom. Fly high Mr. Dockery and we will see each other again.

I worked with Ted pretty much on a daily basis when I was a funeral director at Resthaven. I loved him so much! He was always encouraging me to do my best and that he was proud of me regardless of what others thought or said. He was great to have on your team when you worked a funeral with him! He was VERY courteous, he knew just about everyone, and he certainly knew the proper ways a funeral should be done. Till we meet again my friend! ❤❤

Ted Dockery’s name should be at the top of the Encouragers Hall of Fame ... if there is one. Ted was always sending me encouragement, especially in my darkest and most broken days. The emails, the notes, or texts would show up just when I needed them. Just last week we buried my dad and quickly there was a note from Jimmy at The Children’s Home that Ted had donated in dad’s honor. Amazing! Go to Broadways prayer room sometime and look at the list where you sign in. What remains of the list dates back to 1988. Ted Dockery’s name is in there hundreds of times. Ted put Ted second and all others first!
