  1. Sandy & family,

    No words can express the sadness I feel with Terry’s passing. He was a friend in high school and remained so through our lives. I am so thankful we got to meet after so many years after graduating together. I will always remember the Thanksgiving we spent together. Please call if Kerry and I can be of help. We love you.
