i played basketball with terry and went to church with him. good friend and a great guy. I asked him to play basketball years ago and he did not think he would be able to run that much but said he would try it . well we played together every week for 12 years in durham. loved talking to terry after the games before going our separate ways to go home. terry was always willing to help anyone when they needed it regardless of the timing of their need. I will miss you my friend. see you when I make my own journey to heaven someday. my wife and I would like to send our condolences to terrys family and fellow workers at his jobs.
