    What a kind and generous care giver Terry was.
    The last time I visited Terry, he was giving me cooking tips while he prepared dinner for Maxine and himself. He grew an amazing variety of peppers which made me think he might have been a good organic farmer. We find comfort knowing that Our Heavenly FATHER set aside a plot of land for Terry and that we can compare notes again when we see each other in heaven.
    We offer prayers on behalf of the whole family and grieve with you for your loss.

    Condolences to my dear cousins, Bob & Tim, may you find comfort with your memories. I will miss Terry very much at the Family reunions, he was always the first to throw out that $2.00 bid no matter what. There will be an emptiness this year…. Carry on Terry, till we meet again, I’ll see you on the other side…

    Terry was so good to his mother, my good friend, Maxine. He gardened, cooked, cleaned and was so handy at fixing things.
    It might be difficult to lose your loved one, Terry, so I am asking God to comfort each of you. The Lord is your shepherd, you shall not want. Psalm 23:1

    Our condolences in the passing of Terry. Remember him from scouts, and from work at the awning business.
