Pam, there are not any right words to express our deepest sympathy to you and your family. We enjoyed bowling with you and Terry. He will be missed. I think of you everyday in your time of sorrow. Love and peace to you and your family.

Terry was always so nice to me. I remember coming out for Laura's wedding, and both he and his wife treating me like one of their own. He was a kind soul and I'll never forget him. R.I.P. Terry.
