I am so sorry to hear the passing of Terry. He was my first boss and loved working with him. I know he loved his family. I had heard that he had Alzheimers and i can't tell you enough how sorry i am. That disease took my mother and it was so hard on us all. Hold on to your precious memories and know that he is in a better place now. My love and prayers to Ms Gloria and the kids.
