Dear Cheryl, Tammy, John ... I am so very sorry for your loss. Terry was one of those bigger than life guys, and it was so much fun being around that whole gang of Dad's and Terry's from the Atwood neighborhood when they had their get-togethers, when we were growing up. What a bunch of cards 🙂 they all had so much fun together, and we had so much fun with all of you. The Colonel and the Colonel, back together again. But they leave such a hole in our hearts. Love you all and thinking of you.

Dear Cherie, Tammy and John, I want to express my sincere sympathy to you and your families. Terry I have known since back in the 80ies, where my husband Dave and I had our laundromat in the same building, as Terry's Dry Cleaners Service and then became business partners. I feel sad with his illness and many times with health issues. I feel he is now at rest and in a better place feeling no pain and confusion. I hope peace and comfort will come in the near future and you cherish good memories you had with him over the years. Terry was a good and hard working man. Your Friend, Kathy Bohn
