My deepest sympathies to all of the Snivley family...Terry was a kind, generous and wonderful client of mine, I was very saddened by his sudden and tragic passing, and will very much miss seeing him (and Abbey) in my chair every other Wednesday for his haircut and great conversations.

Dear Snively family, It is so hard to believe - and so very sad. I know how much he will be missed by our group - and all who knew him. He was a wonderful one-of-a-kind person. Our thoughts are with you all.

Caught by terrible surprise when I saw this, haven't seen Terry for quite awhile, he was a friend, my lawyer at one time and customer at the Uptown, he was always so full of life. My deepest sympathy and prays to his family.
