So sorry to hear about Terry, and wish I had known in time for the funeral. Terry was also so happy and a big help at Mills Masquers working on scenery with Craig Williams. I have lots of good memories of Terry at the Masquers. My condolences to all the family.

Carol, my sincere condolences and prayers to you and your family. I remembers Terry when I worked a short time for the railroad. He always was a gentle guy with a big heart and smile. Grieve in peace knowing that he is with the father of life and he will embrace you when the appropriate time arrives. Sincerely Richard Wagaman (Wiggles)
