Terri & Family, I was just thinking of you all the other day and wondering how you were doing. I have fond memories of visiting Beech Grove UMC (friend of our beloved Penny Terrell). Your children grew up thru the years and it was a pleasure to know you then. May God strengthen you all as you say goodbye to your precious Daddy. You will never have ones that love you as much as Mom & Dad. I miss mine so much. In Christian Love, Rexine
