Donate in Honor of Teddi Lampone

Teddi Lampone and Miguel VenegasAugust 14, 2018

Dear NPH Family,

It is with a heavy heart that I share the news of my beloved godmother, best friend, donor, and beautiful person, Teddi Lampone, who passed away this morning. It is impossible not to shed tears of pain at the death of such a beautiful person. She was like my mother, and she won the affection of the whole NPH family.

I met Teddi in Yarnell, Arizona in 1998. That’s 30 years ago and since then Teddi has been part of my life, my failures and my successes. Teddi treated me like her son and she was always there for me. In the absence of me having a mother figure, Teddi did her best to cover that part with providing me with love and attention. We will miss her greatly.

Teddi was part of our family since 1987. She made many generous donations to NPH during her lifetime and was a truly dedicated and upstanding model citizen who cared deeply for the NPH family. We ask for your prayers for Teddi. May God have her in his glory and may God give strength and endurance to her family in this difficult time.
