Not sure what to say?

I knew Terry in the beginning, in Waltham, in 1969. He taught me a lot about real programming, machine portability, and scurrying around MIT. He complained about me sleeping in my office and rudely woke me at 9 am. Thank you Terry. My condolences to your family, may they prosper.

I first met Terry when Rational Systems first began in Massachusetts. He was an intelligent, interesting, creative soul. Though we have been out of touch for some time, I will always remember the days of Instant-C, DesqViewX, and of course the creation of Terry and Ben's DOS/16M. Despite all the time he spent on these projects, his family was clearly of greatest importance in his life. My sincesest condolences. He was one if a kind.
