Terry was a wonderful brother, always fun to be around him and to talk about the things of the Lord and His Kingdom. He was such a blessing to all who knew him. We thank the Lord for such a loving brother who also loved and trusted the Lord to carry him through so many trials. We are so sorry he is gone for now but know we will see him soon when we exchange this earthly tabernacle for an immortal, Heavenly one. Roger and Rebecca Markwald
