Dear Family, I worked with Terry, a truly one-of-a-kind. He was creative, professional,and I swear, he never had a bad day. He will live in the hearts and minds of many. Mary Ann Morris
So sorry to hear of your loss. I joined IT in June of 2007 where I started supporting Terry! Terry was a wonderful person and would do anything for anyone.
Thinking of all of you during this difficult time and keeping each one of you in my prayers.
Hold on to the fond memories of your loved one.
Hugs to you all!
In this life, there are those who genuinely care for others, are generous with their time and resources, put family first, bear other's burdens, sympathize and console those in need, and who are meek and tender souls. These servants in Christ are blessings from above and they truly are missed when they pass on. Terry was such a man, though I only knew him growing up in Claremont. Our paths diverged many years ago, and we got together only a few times since high school.
This life is a hard one to bear but Terry always kept his chin up and always had a smile on his face. I cannot wait to see him again, where he will have all eternity to tell me stories of his life. My most sincere and heart felt condolences to the family and friends he left behind.
"But the greatest among you shall be your servant." Matthew 23:11
