Ms. T,
All I can say is that my thoughts go out to you and the family. Please try your best to stay strong, let others help, and take care of yourself first before trying to take care of everyone else because we know how caring and giving you are.
Remember you are not alone and you have so many people who are thinking of you and ready to help.
Love,
Ping

Prayers for Terry's family. I will miss going by and talking to him at work being only one year apart in age we had a lot in common. He was one of the nicest guy you would ever want to be around. When I would walk into his office Terry would open the desk drawer and pull out the good candy he kept hidden and I would joke with him about having my radio that was really his that he let me use when I move into his office in he blade shop. God bless you Terry for listening to me and sharing your family stories. Will miss you my friend.
