Our hearts were truly saddened by Terry's passing. He was an integral part of our lives during the first years of our business. Ann and I predicted Josh and Staci's marriage and were pleased when they found each other and made it happen! We share the bond of friendship and grandchildren. Please know that you are all in our prayers. God bless you all as you mourn the loss of Terry.
Love, Christine and Dan Hunt

I’m so very sorry to hear about Terry’s passing. He was my first boss and first true mentor. He taught me the fundamentals of craftsmanship and customer service and was an icon in our hometown. I wish I could be home in Indiana with you all. I have an assignment next week in Korea or else I’d definitely be there to show support. He had a great heart and cared to provide comfort for the people in our community. Working with him was a privilege and I will miss him dearly.
