am sorry for your loss. I met Terry in New Cumberland in the 80's. I was a hairstylist and he came in to get haircuts
for several years. Terry brought a smile to my face when I saw him, and I liked interacting with him. I was just thinking
of him some weeks ago with my friend Dawn, and we were sharing memories of Terry. He was a very gentle giant, and I know
heaven has a new angel now. May God keep you surrounded by love and peace.
condolences. I worked with Terry when he lived with the twins, Louella and Lourene in Drexel Hills. He could say more with
the word "No" than most authors could with a novel. He was a very special individual.
I am deeply saddened by this! I have not been able to be in his life
for the last couple of years and there hasn't been a day that I have not thought about him. He brought so much joy and
happiness to my life. He definitely taught me a lot of things and I will never forget him.
Rider and family,
I am so very sorry for your loss. I have known and loved Terry for around 30-years. He was my
friend and teacher. I will always cherish my memories of him.
