Terry was my uncle ( my dads baby brother ). He lived next door to us for many years in lake village Arkansas before his death. He had many nieces and nephews who cherished him and loved him a lot. Terry had many friends in lake village Eric and Brian loved him like a brother and helped us take care of him everyday. Terry helped us the past four years taking care of my mom with her illness too. Coming by checking on her and doing things for her. We will miss uncle Terry greatly. Our comfort is knowing and recalling the day uncle Terry turned his life over to God and was saved and is now singing with the Angels in heaven with my dad. These two men were great influences in my life especially teaching me that without God you can't do anything but following God makes you stronger and more determined. We love you uncle Terry
