Terry was so always kind and watchful over the people in his life, I know when Jessica and I were young he always kept an eye out for us, and always big smiles and hugs even if you hadn't seen him in a while. Such a kind man he would've given his shirt off his back to anyone in need, helped just to help anyone, his kind heart and spirit will be missed. My hopes are he can now rest and no longer struggle. He was a blessing to have know, met and spent time with. RIP To Tall
