  2. I met Terry a long time ago when I was in college with Cindy. To Mrs. Turek and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I hold you all gently in my thoughts and prayers.

  3. Terry was a very kind classmate. I just learned of his passing and am very sad to hear this. He had the best smile, tossled hair, and the most handsome freckled face. He was joyful and he passed that joy on, in the hallways in school and in his life. I am blessed to have known him. Thank you for all of your kindness, dear Terry.
