Just received this notice about Terry. We were friends in the college days in Morgantown. We might have drank a few beers together. So sorry to hear of this news. Go mountaineers

Terry was my very first friend! We lived across the street from each other and played together every day. In the summer, we played every day, all day. We would fight... and then be back to best friends by the next morning. I regret that we have grown apart through the years. Rest In Peace my friend.

Growing up, my family lived across the street from Terry's family. When my younger brother, Doug Samples, was born, Terry's mother, Cora Lee, babysat my older brother and me for a few days until Mom got home from the hospital. Doug and Terry became great friends and were always at each others houses. As adults, I also worked for the State of West Virginia and occasionally my work would require that I walk across the campus to Building 1 and sometimes I was lucky enough to run into Terry. Doug and I both send our thoughts and prayers to Jenny.
