    Hearing of Terry’s passing was very sad. It was an honor to know Terry and a privilege to consider him a friend for many years, from high school buddies to our girls also being high school friends. Even though life took us in different directions, true friendships always last. I thank you for allowing me to be your friend, rest in peace. God Bless you all and may you have many memories to help you through this difficult time.

    Oh….we go back a long time. Your family lived down the street from us, and the six of us were best friends! Played everyday all day and many times into the night! I think our folks were glad to get rid of six rambunctious kids! They were such great memories for me and my brother Duane and sister Betty.Derald did you know that I had a crush on you? You so handsome to me. I see you are still a handsome man.
    Then we moved to Washington St. Our friendship lost forever. Kathy, you and I kept writing for years, Penpals. I think I still have the letters.
    This is such a loss, the words come hard for me. My thoughts and prayers are with you and all your families. May God help you thru this difficult time.
