  • I am sorry for your loss, Pat, but know that Terry will be very close by until you meet again on the “other side.” I am glad I talked with him at our last class reunion. He was and is a very interesting and fun person to be around!

  • May you Rest In Peace Uncle Terry. I remember that old FLH panhead that you rode up to Grandma and Grandpa’s house when I was little… Hope you and dad are taking a heavenly cruise on your bikes right now.

  • Sorry to hear about your loss Pat. It was always nice to get together at family reunions and catch up on what everyone was doing. Prayers for comfort, strength and peace.
