    Sabrina, you went far beyond the care and comfort for Terry and as a result he tried his very very best to not give up. You are remarkable and I am sure Terry shared his gratitude many many times. Let Terry’s whole life experiences motivate you and others to new heights. Condolences!

    As a neighbor and friend it was sad to witness Terry’s fight all of 2018. On the other hand it was so remarkable to witness this man fight and prepare for Heaven. His love and caring for others gave him strength beyond words. He was totally focused on making sure his entire Family would be ready for their future when his time came.
    Ginger sure will miss playing fetch with her Terry down at the creek.

      You made me cry but you also made me smile. Yes, he loved his family, he loved you Goose n was crazy about Ginger. Thanks to you, Aurie n Ginger for supporting him during his fight with this horrible, evil disease. You are appreciated beyond words!

    After many years out of touch with Terry, we are saddened to learn of his passing. He often worked as a fill-in for me at my music store, and even on occasion at my house. He was dedicated to his job and well respected around the area.
    We shared the love of old cars/trucks and he even drove by my house one day just to “show-off” one of his favorites!!
    My wife and I extend our sympathy to all family and friends.

    R.I.P. Terry, at your heavenly creek where the hummingbirds never leave and UK Basketball is always on!

    Our hearts are heavy over the loss of your dear Terry. Our loving Creator wants to comfort you with his promise that, “God…will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” (Revelation 21:3,4) May this promise bring you comfort and hope.
