It is a tearful time again. Miss you so much. Love as always. Dad

It hasn’t even felt like seven years since you left us. I wish you were still here to see how far everyone has come. It sucks to realize I won’t see you setting off fireworks off of grandmas porch anymore or hear you calling down to grandma about how someone is on the phone. But, I know you’re always there in some way. Everyday I see how much my sisters and I are like you, uncle Chris and my dad. Kinda scary sometimes but pretty great most of the time. I miss you so much and I hope you’re having fun up there.

Tomorrow is your 7th Heavenly Birthday. The pain of losing you never gets easier and never dulls. I hope from Heaven you can see how wonderful Zander is turning out, I wish you could have stayed here with him longer. I miss you so much. I know Sasha is in Heaven too. Give her a big hug for me. LOVE MOM

Happy Birthday. Just wanted to let you know earth is still thinking about you and loving you more than ever. Thanks for visiting my mind each and every day. Love Dad

Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place. Miss you greatly brother. Keep watch over the family for me.

It has been 5 years. Please stop by and see me if you can. I miss you so much. Love DAD

My heart knows that the front door will not open to your returning. But my heart now knows the meaning of sorrow which has invaded every fiber of my being. I miss you so much and love you forever. Mom

"So let the light guide your way, hold every memory as you go. And every road you take will always lead you home. It's been a long day without you my friend, and I'll tell you all about it when I see you again. We've come a long way from where we began, and I'll tell you all about it when I see you again...when I see you again." 4 years and I still don't want to believe you're gone. I love reading and hearing all of these crazy stories about you and the things you did just to make someone else laugh. Your goofy personality was infectious and anyone who had the chance to meet you knew that you were one in a million. Each year when we all sit down for the holidays you can bet that someone has an old story to share that always ends in the whole family laughing so hard we cry. The only thing missing is you. I know you're out there watching over each and every one of us and that warms my heart. XOXO

4 Years.....Wow... Today I was thinking about this the whole day figuring out what I should write about. I have missed you so much these past years. I STILL can't believe you are gone. I sometimes think that you are still watching tv on the couch at Grandmas or even just standing in the living room talking to my dad and Uncle Chris about some gun or news or really anything. I love you and miss you so much
Posted by Jamie Zastrow on 10th November 2015
This is still a very hard day for me as I think about our last conversation together as we smiled and laughed before you took your last breath. You will forever be missed and loved. You blessed so many people and I am comforted by knowing that you are watching over all of us, until we come home to you once more. You and I have a special light and connection in this world and beyond that no one can take away. I pray for your soul that it is at peace with everything as we all continue to carry on in this world without your smiling face. Miss you and Love ya forever!
Posted by Terry Hornsey on 10th November 2015
It has been four years and I am waiting for this pain to diminish. My heart still waits for the door to open and you are home. I have realized that you are home and it is me that will be going through the door to be home with you. Until then we deal as best we can with missing you.I love you all the way to God and back. Mom
Posted by Jack Hornsey on 10th November 2015
Forever missed is a reality because I think of you daily. 4 Years already.I pray you are in the a great place and I pray for your guidance. Love is forever. Dad

Few words can be spoken to alleviate the sorrow and pain I feel for the loss of my youngest brother. Its been four years since your passing and little has changed. I still hope to hear about your antics when I talk to Mom on the phone, I yearn to hear your voice when I return home for the holidays and see Zander so proudly display his collection of cars for you to see when you come home from work. I miss you greatly and I know that through all of the grief and sorrow, you still look down upon us, visit with us and look over the family. Rest peacefully my brother.

Four years ago today. Still can't believe you're gone. I still remember you and I in the back seat of my moms car as she was driving you, dressed as the Purple People Eater, to a game at CBC. Haha!! Good times!! Most people don't keep in touch with their first boyfriends, but I was grateful that you and I did. I've got great memories of us. I can't imagine what you're family goes through each and every day. I pray for them and will continue to do so though. I hope you're up there keeping an eye on the Blues this year. And if you're u are...THEY NEED YOUR HELP!! LOL Love ya buddy and miss you.

Happy Birthday Terry, though you are gone, we all still think about you and miss you. In dark days and dark nights we have our faith to embrace, for without faith we have nothing! Rest in Peace!

Today is your 39th Birthday. How blessed we were to have you for your 35 years here with us. I was remembering how much you loved your Birthday parties when you were a kid. You always loved fun. We miss you so much and wish you were here to have a party today. I love you . Mom

It doesn't feel like it's been three years. It feels like an eternity. We all miss you very much Uncle Terry. I love you and miss you.

Three Years..... It has been too long....Where has the time gone? I cant believe it! I'm just speechless.....

I know you are with us everyday and i love that feeling. I love you so much and we miss you so much!

3 years, impossible but true. Your head stone says so. You may be physically gone but you still live in the hearts and minds of many. I think of you every day. Please don't prank God. When you see Him say "HI" for me. Some day we will all be together.
Posted by Gayle Wright on 10th November 2014
Say not in grief "He is no more," but live in thankfulness that he was. 3 years, seems impossible and we are all still missing you Terry but faith tells us we will be reunited at the end of our road. Love, hugs and prayers
Posted by Terry Hornsey on 9th November 2014
Three years you have been gone. My head knew you had gone but my heart said this was not true and you were coming home. My heart is beginning to know you are really gone and the front door is not going to open and you will be there. I cry more now with this knowledge. My eyes get clouded with tears when I see a DodgeCharger or a car you would have loved. We miss you and your quick wit and zest for life. I miss you so much and love you to GOD AND BACK. Mom

Dearest brother, we are celebrating your 38th birthday today. Despite the time that has passed, your presence in our lives is missed greatly. We are reminded of the bright light of happiness and love that you brought all of us in our daily lives while you were with us. Your son Zander continues to represent your love and brings happiness to us all despite your physical absence. He demonstrates so many of your qualities, and has become "man of the house" on St. Catherine. I miss having you hear with us but I take great satisfaction in knowing that you are with all of us in our memories. There have been many a times when I feel you presence, and I smile knowing that you are there enjoying the laugh with me. .Happy Birthday little brother !!

Today was a beautiful day in St Louis. Maybe you know that. Went to your resting place today. The deer were thick and prancing and enjoying the day. Maybe you know that too. I was looking for good and happiness in it all and I found it knowing your in a better place than I. See you soon, but not to soon. Love, Dad.............Gayle too...........Two Years, seems like two months

You can shed tears that he is gone Or you can smile because he has lived You can close your eyes and pray that he will come back Or you can open your eyes and see all that he has left Your heart can be empty because you can't see him Or you can be full of the love that you shared You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday You can

The last thing I remember us talking about was how short life is when you count it by summers. I want so deeply to have spent more time with your unique presence in our lives. We all miss you deeply and pray you can feel our love as strongly as we still feel it for you. Brother they certainly broke the mold with you.
Posted by Terry Hornsey on 9th November 2013
Another year has gone by without you. I thought by now my pain would be less. I was wrong. The pain is as fresh and intense as ever. I miss your silliness, your wit, your zest for life. Everybody does. I can't understand why a little boy had to go on without you. That hurts the most. God had his plan for you and we who are left behind have to deal with that plan. I miss and love you. Mom

Terry, just want to let you know that you have been on my mind a lot lately. Sure miss you and all the fun we used to have. I know your wife and son miss you so much, I also know if you had the choice you would of never left them. I wish I could have one more day with you! Love you.

I know i sounded like a 2 year old but i cant stand this.i miss you sooooo much.

"Dear Uncle Terry I miss how you would always have something goofy to point out or to say I miss how you loved to set firecrackers, etc. Off just like everybody else I miss seeing your face once I walk into Grandmas house I miss not seeing you lay on the couch watching t.v I miss you your voice yelling to grandma that someone is on the phone for her and most of all I miss you I love you so

Dear Terry, Happy Belated Birthday I thought of you all day and was so sad for your family as I can only imagine the pain they felt in their hearts not having you here with them to celebrate your 37th. I know you are in a better place and are keeping your eyes on all of them and counting the days when you all will be reunited again in the glory of God our Father.
Posted by John Hornsey on 31st July 2013
Dear Brother, I find myself wanting another day, another hour or even another minute to wish you a Happy Birthday in person. To have a moment to repair what had been broken between us. A moment to let my youngest brother know how much I loved him. Happy 37th Birthday Brother......
Posted by John Hornsey on 31st July 2013
Feel no guilt in laughter, he'd know how much you care. Feel no sorrow in a smile that he is not here to share. You cannot grieve forever; he would not want you to. He'd hope that you could carry on the way you always do. So, talk about the good times and the way you showed you cared, The days you spent together, all the happiness you shared. Let memories surround you, a word someone may say Will

I was on Parris Island today and I could not help but think of Terry, and I cried. It is so sad living life without him. Thinking about daily tasks and not having him for advise. Life with out him hurts and is so sad. I pray that he is in a better place and hecan't wait for us to come and see him. Love, Dad
Posted by Terry Hornsey on 10th November 2012
It has been a year and my sorrow is as deep as the day you left. I am still waiting for the door to open and you will be home. Then reality tells me you are really gone. But you will never be gone from our hearts. We all love you and miss you and struggle to go forward without you. I love you and I am anxiously waiting until the day we are together again.

Terry I wanted to change the song to something that has helped me cope with your loss. The first time I heard this song I spoke to me with your overwhelming presence. When I heard the song and ever since I've know it captures everything you want us to know before becoming part of a grander existence. Terry I am permanently hurt, but I promise I am alright.
Posted by Amber Clover on 1st August 2012
Today, I think of you. I think of your infectious laugh, your goofy smile, your jokes, your love for your family, and so much more. I cannot even begin to put into words how greatly you are missed and loved. Happy Birthday Uncle Terry. Love, your nieces, Amber, Gillian, and Gabby.
Posted by John Hornsey on 31st July 2012
My Dear Brother, I wish more time had been made for you in this life. More birthday celebrations to be had, more time for us to see over our children as they grow. The time passes and yet the pain of your death still stings deep inside. Today, I am remembering moments of our childhood. These memories bring joyful tears to my eyes. Happy Birthday Little Brother, your are greatly missed.

Thinking of you on this very special day wishing you were here to celebrate. Hockey, hockey, and even more hockey is one of the memories I have. Going to Webster rink and Brentwood rink and hanging out at your house and at my house. RIP Terry!!
