I'm glad to have had the opportunity to know you over the past few years and to exchange a few Amry stories. You always had a smile and I could tell you were fighting thru pain and came to every game that you could physically make. Your dedication to the Seal family was clear. Thank you for your service, RIP Sergeant Major.

Terry and Phillis,

It’s been our pleasure getting to know you and share conversations the last 7 years. We couldn’t ask for better neighbors.

I would enjoy visiting with you at the VA and am forever grateful for your service to Our Country.

Phillis, our thoughts are with you and we will be by to see you soon.

William and Alison.

So sorry for your loss. We know Terry will be missed by so many. We are remembering how much he loved the Grandkids and always expressed that to them in many ways. You all will be in our prayers.
