The Thomley family loved Terry Carswell. His happy disposition and big smile will be long remembered. Our son Ken recalled how Terry would say to Beryl, "Woman. where's my coffee?" (Of course we know that he got his coffee only because Beryl WANTED to get it!) Once we arrived home from church to hear the phone ringing. It was a laughing Terry asking "Did you forget something?" We had left little Joshua asleep under a pew. These are just a couple of things that impressed us about Terry. We know that he is having a grand time in heaven, and we look forward to seeing him again.
