Mrs. Edwards, I was told that your father had the same "compassionate and sincere " demeanor as yourself. I can only imagine the lasting and beautiful memories you were blessed to have shared with him. May the comfort of our Lord and Savior be with you and your family always.

When I think of Bro. Terry, the thoughts are “Awesome Man of God”, Man of Integrity”, “Servant”, “Humble”, “Family Man”. “A Man of Godly Character”.

He was an example and blessing to all who knew him. A great loss for those he leaves behind but he is so very blessed, happy and complete beyond anything that we can ever comprehend. I hurt for all he leaves behind but rejoice with him who is in the presence of our Savior.

This life is a vapor and then we have an eternity together with our loved ones in an atmosphere and realm that we have yet to be able to imagine. Sweet reunion will be here before we know it so hold fast to God and let him rock you in his arms and smother you with his peace and awesome love like no earthly one can do.

My prayers go out to the Edwards family. Growing up Terry always treated me like family, he always had that sense of concern for all the younger folks in the community wanting nothing but the best for all of us. God bless you Terry, I know God has you carrying on the good works. You will be missed my brother.

To Sharise & her family, Terry was truly a wonderful and fine "gentle" man. He always had a smile no matter what the occasion or time of day. He always had or made the time to speak to each and everyone; he had compassion and understanding and caring. The angels in heaven just received one of their own.

Terry was someone I looked up to and he was like a dad to me. I will miss him. He helped me when life was tough and his love for the Lord is what I will remember the most. He was a role model for me and I wish I had the chance to see him one last time but I will see him in heaven where he is now.

Terry was a man I looked up to. Rhonda and I are blessed by his example of friendship, leadership and service to our Lord. The family's consolation comes from above.

When the cares of my heart are many, your consolations cheer my soul. Psalm 94:19

Vickie, you & your family have our deepest sympathy. I worked with Terry starting in 1977 & my husband did starting in 1994. Terry was a special guy. So nice & humble. May God comfort you & we will be with you in spirit this weekend.
