I’m sorry to hear of your dad’s passing. He was very kind and whenever I would come up, he and your mom would invite me to their house. I wish I would have stayed in better contact.
Your mom and dad are no longer in pain. Prayers being said for comfort and peace during your grieving process.
Time will ease the pain, but the memories will always remain.
Terry was good for the whole community, and always had a thoughtful calming spirit. He was especially kind to me as I was getting started in the field of Agriculture. My condolences to his family.
Thinking of all of you in this time Terry was a very special cousin and friend
He helped my family in all ways and we always appreciated his kindness ❤️
I have very fond memories of Terry and your mom . I always rode up to the farm on Karen McCoy’s horse and your dad always greeted me with that great smile of his, I truly believe he is once again with your mom and the rest of our family that preceded your DAD.
Taylor, my thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. It seemed like he was a very special member of the community and will be missed greatly.
