    Carol, Twila, Steve & Calli,
    We are so sorry to hear of the passing of your dear husband, father and grandfather. Terry’s gentle strength was there in everything he did. He was such a common face in so many community events that it was just ‘expected’ to see Terry there. He had a twinkle in his eye and a smirk on his face when you were lucky enough to joke around with him. His devotion to his family was precious to watch, especially when he was with his granddaughter. Our deepest sympathies to all of you and may our community surround you with love.
