    Terry was the love of my life, my soul mate, and my best friend. I walked into a classroom in 1973 at EWSU and saw him sitting at a table and fell instantly in love. I didn’t even know his name. He said it was the same for him. We became inseparable. Not a day went by that I didn’t think how lucky I was. He was the strongest, kindest, most patient man you could ever meet. Anyone who knew him was truly blessed.

    When Terry was in grade school, he came home very excited about a lesson a teacher had given the class that day. He said, ” I don,t want to read about those places, I want to see them!” When he got old enough, he traveled and didn’t stop looking.
