    Terry you have always remained my favorite nephew-in-law. Knowing you all those years ago brings such sweet smiles to my heart. I will always cherish the memories of Germany and Fort Sill. In the last decade we did not get to see each other, but you were never far from my thoughts. Rest well sweet one, you deserve it.

    Love You! Pennie
