  3. Susan. I didn’t know Terry but I do know you and I know how your heart is breaking now. I also know there is One who knows all things and does all things well. We can not always see His hand in the midst of sorrow but my prayer for you is that He will reveal Himself to you in a very real way in the days to come. If you ever just need a human ear, please call and know you are in my prayers.

  4. Terry was a wonderful person to know he never changed. Every time I saw him the first thing he would do is give me that big smile of his and ask how everyone in my family was doing. Terry was a very caring person that believed in helping you out in any way he could. He told me that was what friends are for. He will be deeply missed by alot of people but never forgotten by the people that truely knew and loved him.
    With Deepest Sympathy
