    Debbie, I am so very sorry!!! Please accept my condolences for the loss of your husband, Terry and to his beautiful children, grandchildren and family. Terry and I met a few times and the first time was when I met him with you for TJ. I saw his love for his children on his face that day. From that day forward I knew he was a special man person and above all Dad. I will miss him because there were some things we forever agree on, and Terry I got this! Sending all my love to Debbie and family forever. Rest In Peace now, Terry. I always say to those who go to Heaven before us, “You Won!” God Bless you always! Amen
