  8. Dear Leslie and family, My thoughts are with you all during this time.
    I reflected last night Leslie on some of the wonderful and fun times we all had as school kids in this lovely town of Rossville. The times is seemd half of our class or Terry’s classmates were always in your little apartment- the music that was played and the friendships that survive the years. Remember when we learned to play pitch sitting at Ed and Darlene’s kitchen table and the jokes Terry would play on us all!!! You have a lifetime of such wonderful memories to share with you children and grandchildren-nieces and nephews. Terry was the love of your life and you were his. The warmth and security of that will wrap itself around you and you will know he smiles on you still. Love to you all.
