Terry was my friend & neighbor for many years. We shared many “war” stories from life & work over the years. I’ m going to miss my buddy,when he would go by my house he’d always give a toot &a wave. I’d holler “Hey Bubba!” Gonna miss ya Terry, GOD SPEED TO YA AMIGO !
How tragic. So young by my standards. Just beginning a new era in life. Diane, be strong and lean on your children, they will get you through.it’s ok to grieve and know that Terry would want you to carry on and have a beautiful life.
Diane, Sean, Aaron, Eric, along with Sara, Mackenzie, Emma and Ava,
May you feel God’s arms wrapped around you and help guide you through this difficult time.
When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure! You all have many treasures to cherish and share them with each other and Ava. HUGS to all!
