I was Terry's oldest living cousin. His mother and mine were sisters and I am a sister of Jean Haskin. I have not seen Terry in years but have many childhood memories of him and his children at our grandparents house when we were all growing up. I also have many memories of he and his brother when we all visited his parent's house. All are good memories. In the last 3 or 4 years we have been on FB. My heart goes out to all of you who loved him and I will pray that your God give you the strength to get through this.

So many fun memories. When Terry and I were kids if there was trouble to be found we found it. From camping adventures to NYC adventures in central park. The stories we could tell and often did. RIP my cousin. I will miss you. Love Jean and Ron
