  • Bonnie, I’m so sorry for your loss. I’ve been thinking about you and all of your family.

  • Dear Bonnie ,
    My thoughts are with you and your family at this difficult time of losing someone who you love. I will miss my greeting in the morning talking with Terry before preschool children arrived. One of my favorite conversation with Terry while we were at the church was him telling me about his job with the phone company. How long him and Bonnie have been doing 4H. That day I learn alot about his family and the activities that he enjoyed. The one thing Terry really enjoyed was selling his peanut brittle for the Masonic Lodge. I was amaze how much ingredients that went into making the peanut brittle. Terry gave me a update on how it was done. He enjoy this fundraiser because it went for a good cause helping people in need. It was a really wonderful experience to really get to know Terry. I can still see his smile and hear his laugh. Bonnie was bless to have Terry for 47 years of marriage. I hope the good Lord bless me with a long marriage. Bonnie we will cherish all the memories that Terry left behind at Bellpoint Church. I will be praying that God will give you and your family strength . In Christ, Jodeen Miller

And while we are all saddened by his passing and remember the good times and his many years of service, we rejoice as he joins our Heavenly Father. May God wrap his loving arms around you and bring you comfort. Our prayers go with him and you and family.

  • To Bonnie and the family. So sorry I couldn’t make it to the calling hours. I am praying for the family and we will miss Terry. I have known all of you most of my life and I wish you could have had many more years with Terry here, but know that he is at peace with our Lord.

  • We were saddened to learn of Terry’s passing. It was a sad but clear reminder that life is short and we should make the best of it, just as Terry did. Many thoughts and prayers to Bonnie, the boys and the grandchildren. God bless.

  • We just heard of Terry’s passing and are devastated. We were neighbors of the Hatcher family in Delaware before our moving to Florida, and although we have been gone for several years, we continued to consider Hatchers as great friends. Terry was as good a neighbor and friend as we could have asked for. Words cannot express our shock and feelings of loss. May God’s peace be with the family at this time. We love you!
