I don't know where to start. I've been around along time and have always had great respect of Terry. He comes from a wonderful Mom and a very good Dad. The rest of the family are very good people to. I can't imagine the loose they are feeling, I offer my deepest sympathies go out to them. I know that doesn't help, but understand I feel at least part of the loose with you. I wish you all the best working through this trying time. He was taken form ya'll way to soon and I'm very very sorry for that. There's nothing really that can be said to make it better..I'm sure of that. Just know that there are others that feel your loose 2 and your not alone. Lean on them, let them help you through this. I liked Terry very much. My best to all the family.

Terry has always been a very special person, even when he was a baby, toddler, child, and young man! I will always love him and he will always be special to me. My thoughts and prayers are with Barbara, his siblings, his girlfriend and her daugher, and his work family, and his biker family. Terry was truly special to everyone who met him! He WILL be missed!!

Life is a gift, and it is hard to have that gift taken away from you so unexpectedly. Remembering Terry through shared memories, pictures, rides, and family gatherings will help to heal your broken hearts in time. May God Bless your family and keep you close to all that love you.

Sending the Family all my strongest prayers and deepest heart felt sympathy. Terry was a great man, a true friend of strength & encouragement, always offering to lend a helping hand, a smile, a 'hey girl', to a ride - as he liked to say - ripping up some pavement on his Harley. I am left with a heavy heart and a void that will not be replaced. I will hold you in my heart. Debo
