I met Terry when I graduated high school and he was my first boyfriend. Probably tmi but I am so sad to hear of his passing. He spent a lot of time with me and my family. Funny to hear that he loved his HD as I ride as well. Crazy how life turns out He was a great guy and I am sure he will be missed by all. My condolences to his family and cats lol. He was so young and taken by a horrible sickness. I am glad he was in my life and got to meet him and his family. Xoxo. Kari

I experienced Terry as a man of great strength and private Faith. He was an artesian, his carpentry work was beyond compare.
In the brief time I’ve known him I was blessed by his depth of soul and our unspoken connection to the Spirit. He is very special man.
