To Nancy & Aunt Betty, and family...Zita and I send our sincere condolences, and also that we are sorry to miss family gathering at this difficult time.
I have just the very best memories of happier times with Terry and our close family growing up...the Christmases at the Duncans...homemade cookies...tons of gifts under the trees...Pampa handing out the presents to us cousins as we waited impatiently for our name to be called...missing Terry when he was called to serve in Vietnam then later when he was recuperating so far away. This is how I remember our sweet Terry.
So now I mourn with you all from afar. Please take care of yourselves and may God be with you and comfort you all. Sending our love. -Jay & Zita
