Sharon my families thoughts and prayers are with you and yours. I've known Terry since we were young and all lived on the hill and I can never remember a time that he was anything but just one of the finest men I've ever known. I remember the joy in his eyes when I told him two and a half years ago that had accepted Christ as my personal savior. His loyalty to me and my business was beyond compare. Im proud to say he was my friend and he will be missed but never forgotten. God bless

Mrs. Sharon we were shocked to learn that Mr. Terry had passed on to heaven. He built our house and during that time had learn that he was a true man of God. We always enjoyed talking with him. He loved his children and grandchildren and talked about them every time he had a chance. My first impression of him was that he had to put off starting our new home because he had a mission trip schedule and would begin on it when he return. I knew then we had the right man to build our home for us. I know words can't heal the hurt but know we are praying for you and the family and that through God's love and guidance he will see you through this time. God Blessing to you and the family

Sharon and kids. I will miss your Dad's greetings and hugs at First Assembly all those years that we visited. I know it hurts, and we all hurt with you. You have many things to be proud of in Terry's life, but most of all you knew his heart. It was a heart that loved The Lord Thy God, you, the kids and all the other people that had the Blessed chance to meet Terry.
