Terry’s desire was to win all his family and friends to Christ. These words would come straight from Terry, to all my friends and family please listen, you know the life I lived and the many mistakes I have made and the times that I nearly died chasing sin and life, I wasted many years. But I want you to understand and know that you do not have to continue down these same roads I did. By the time I finally recognized I was lost and so full of sin I had almost destroyed my life and my family. I truly sought God and he sought me and found me right where I was. He forgave me and changed my heart and life, restored all I had lost, thrown away and misused. He replaced anger, sadness, unforgiveness with a peace and an indescribable love that no man can give nor comprehend. You can have this same gift if you seek God. I guarantee you He will change your life and make you a new person. Know that I love each and every one of you and I could never thank God enough for his Love and Goodness. He will do the same for you. A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
