Terry was a great friend to our family, he always had great stories about working with Ernie Walters, Sr. at Michigan Tractor and stopping by to chat while baling hay on our land.

I will always be grateful to have met Terry and your whole family, in those quiet moments where we sat and talked, he spoke with such love and pride about all of you. It was an honor to care for him. I will miss Terry and that smile of his...and I will miss all of you, God bless you all.
