    Uncle Terry will be missed by all who knew and loved him. He was a big lovable teddy bear, who as a child I remember him always picking on me making me laugh. As an adult I came to admirer the big heart and kindness he had, even with his own challenges in life. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Karen and his children during this difficult time. May he rest in peace.
