Terry and I became friends when his family moved to Oak Lawn in the early 1950’s. We lived three doors down from each other on Harnew Road East. We walked together to Kindergarten and stayed friends ever since. He was my best friend in life. I was going to stop in and surprise him next month as I was going to be in Chicago for a family wedding. I miss him but I hope to see him again someday. We’ll probably get into some trouble then. Just like we did as kids. See you later, Terry.
