"Terry you would love seeing how great Matt and Andrew are doing (and Olivia and Tiffany) and how cute and fun Cash, Will, Jack, Miles and Penelope are. I'm so thankful they still get to be a part of my life - only wish I could see them more and my biggest regret for you is that you don't get to be "Grandpa Terry" as I know you would have had a blast in that role. I know you are watching over all of us however. All your friends miss you dearly as well - but your "Terryisms" continue to be with us every day! Love you my sweet man. Shannon"

We are so glad you left us Shannon.  She is a treasure.  You would be so proud of your boys and their boys, and that beautiful sweet Panelope...2 years old.  We miss you.  And, I am sure you sent our sweet Cooper (our dog) to us.  He is as sweet, and lovable s you were/are!  And, he has your same Birthday, March 2nd.  Hard to believe the coincidence!.  Love you, Mom & Dad"

"We met on my first day of work at Continental Federal Savings & Loan in May, 1978, followed by stints at The Liberty Bank and beyond.  But more than a working relationship, ours was a very special friendship that spanned 35 years.  Our lives always seemed to mirror one another, creating a very special bond.  Always and forever my friend.  We shall meet again on the other side."

"One of my fondest memories of Terry is every time Mustang Sally was sung/played. I will always remember Terry's dance moves to song and will forever perform them myself - who needs gangnam style - go old school with Ride Sally Ride! So to my friend Terry, I hope you are dancing in heaven and say "Ride Terry Ride", and thank you for loving my dear friend Shannon."

"28 years is a long time to be friends with someone.  Our friendship began August 5th 1985, when we started on the same day at Liberty Bank.  You are the best boss I've ever had and truly one of my dearest friends.  I will never forget your smile, humor and our laugh-out-loud good times.
P.S. Thanks for the stripper on my 30th Birthday!!!"

"I knew Terry before I met Ted.  When we first started dating, I'm pretty sure Terry warned Ted that I was crazy.  (Ted really should've listened to him)    : )  
Terry always made me laugh & Ted's stories about their adventures never fail to crack me up.  
He will be missed, but never forgotten.
God bless."

"Mabry and I have been talking about when y'all came and visited and brought her a stuffed monkey.  And how Terry kept saying "moankay"!  Then she asked about when y'all got married and I told her that she was there.  I wished you could have seen her big smile!  I've been looking for the picture to post of that but I can't find it.  We loved Terry's sense of humor and we really miss him."

"Well Terry, so long and God Bless you. I know that I missed out on knowing you as well as I would have liked. We did get to share some fun in Denver, and in OKC though, and I will always remember the great times and stories shared by our mutual friends. I just missed out on too much."

"Seems like you always remember your first best friend. Terry  and I were best buds growing up in Downey Ca . In the baby boomer 50's that meant there was always plenty of kids to play with, if you got in fight with one you could always move on to next kid down the block. But Terry and I always had special bond. When he moved it was like losing a brother. Godspeed Terry!"

This tribute was added by Karen Laster on 10th July 2013

"Terry's infectious smile had you from "hello"!  There are things we don't want to happen but have to accept, things we don't want to know but have to learn, and people we can't live without but have to let go. Friends are part of your family you get to choose, a good friend is hard to find, hard to lose and impossible to forget. Terry-The road goes on forever and the party never ends! Love"

This tribute was added by Erica Kaehly on 9th July 2013

"Terry, in the short time we knew you your sense of humor and easy going nature were always welcome!  What a gift to have known you through Craig and Ashley.  Shannon, I want to thank you for being such an amazing woman-over the past seven years you have shown what commitment and unconditional love truly means-I admire you.  Much love and our deepest sympathies, The Kaehlys"

"I remember Terry from our street on Lowman ave. in Downey. He was our next door neighbor. We had so much fun as the Lowman ave gang. We had a surrey that we all rode up and down the street in.  We had a wonderful time and life was great with the Porters next door.  My prayers are with your family. Terry was truly a kind and caring person. Love Patti Churchill."
