Not sure what to say?

Sweet Friends,

I am so sorry to hear about Terry's passing. I know the sweet Lord has plans for him and is enjoying him being home. I pray for you all for comfort and peace. Terry was a sweet, funny man and Josh always enjoyed going to see him. He love his adventures and stories that he told and looking over his special items he kept on hand such as arrowheads etc. Terry will be missed by so many in our community. Please know that you all are in my thoughts and prayers.

So sorry for your loss.

Just wanted to let you know that we love you and if we can do anything for you let us know.

Thoughts are with family at this time, Terry will be missed. Considered Terry a good friend. Enjoyed visiting at the shop.

So sad to hear of Terry's passing. He was always so enjoyable to talk to while my son was getting a haircut. No one else could cut a flattop like Terry! Sending prayers for his friends and family.

Rest in peace my friend

Prayers for your sweet family in the loss of Terry. I think he must of cut every head of hair in this town at one time or another. He will be missed.

Sorry to hear about Terry. We were cousins ( his dad and my granddad were brothers), but we didn't keep in touch, especially since I left Lampasas. My sympathies to his kids Crystal and Cody and all his family and friends.

Rest peacefully
