  1. Terry lived for the Military. He grew up in the ROTC program at his school.Terry always said that he wanted to be a Marine. He has an older sister that was in the Air Force and an older brother that is also currently a Marine. we owe his whole family a huge Thank You, but none gave as much as Terry. We miss you buddy! I still have my red flowers displayed to remember you by. Love you Terry!
