    There are so many memories of Terry. I can’t begin to list them all. Benny & Terry fished, camped & hunted. I know Terry had some struggles throughout his life but one thing I knew for sure he loved me & my family. He would have done anything I asked of him. He was beyond a friend, he was like family. God was waiting for Terry with open arms. God knew Terry’s heart & knew he needed rest. Terry is resting in peace. He will be missed. He loved & was loved. My love & prayers to his entire family.
