I am very sad and the world is less bright today. My father has passed over. To those who loved him he always let us walk in his work boots, to those who knew him there was a ready smile, to those who simply heard of him there was always a good story attached to hearing of him. To those who didn't have the opportunuity to meet him. You will one day.
Marie & Jim Terwilliger
