    I have so many fond memories of Terry. He touched me with the stories he shared about his service in Vietnam and his many other experiences. He had a wonderful smile and laugh, and a giant heart. Mary, Wendy, and Alex, you will be in my thoughts. Be gentle with yourselves.

    Terry was a great friend. We were always laughing, talking and having fun. Whether we were playing with rc airplanes, going to lunch, sharing stories and planning for our next “I have an idea” adventure. We enjoyed being with Terry and Mary. We miss him already. Mary, Alex, Wendy and Jenna, we send our deepest sympathies.

    I pray that my memories with Terry will forever be vivid in my mind. Most of the time these memories were adventures ... simple projects that evolved. But always they included much of his famous laughter and light moments. It was a honor to call Terry my friend and neighbor.

    Captain Brown was my first Platoon Leader when I arrived in Vietnam. He was a Hard charging helicopter pilot, an excellent leader and great teacher of the skills needed to survive in Vietnam. Terry was respected by every member of our Company. Rest in peace my brother.
