Jan and Family-I’m so sorry for the pain you all are feeling right now. I know words can never replace the void you have, please know I’m praying and thinking of you all. My earliest memories in life have you all in it. Those days were filled with fun and laughter of 3 kids just being kids! Terry was always a free spirited kid- a heart of gold, always had a big smile on his face, willing to help when needed and never got tired of Jon and I following him everywhere. I always felt an emptiness when we lost contact. Terry and Jon were my best friends, they were like brothers to me. I will forever carry those wonderful memories of what your family gave me for the rest of my life. For Terry, you are now free! I hope you soar through the sky, wear that great big smile, you deserve those angel wings. Heaven is now a brighter place because of you! Love you tons good friend......
