T-1........Your were my favorite cousin! Always laid back & nar a hateful word about anyone even when you didn't agree or understand what the other person would OR would not say. I know you are at peace now & I'm sure Granny is giving you a tour. Here you will always be the "gentle giant" due to your height & nature of your deposition. Sis will always miss the times you & she would listen to Secret Agent Man. And just little things you did for her. I'll be seeing you when God lets me know.......it's time to come Home. Until then you will always be in our hearts & when you are there your memory lives on.

I will miss listening to you and my mom (aunt Mary Hook) reminiscing and describing life back in the day when you'd stop by for spur of the moment visits to have a cup of coffee. I got to hear some colorful stories about the Hook and Ambrose families!
Rest in peace.

Well Terry I haven't seen or heard from you since your dad passed. I know their are so many memories that we shared it would take a book. Things like Uncle Don getting stuck in the window in the house on Langley. All the nights we went to Art Zipps ( Now it's the Speeddrome ) speedway to watch the races. Then the picniks with all of your Dad's family, and don't forget the yearly outing to the 500 track. When your dad put our names in the side walk at grannies. I know we were cousins but sometimes we fought like brothers. You are gone and now you get to see all the family that left you behind. I know you will be missed.
