To Terry's family: I have been out of town, and just found out of Terry's death. He was a strong man during his illness and still maintained his joyful spirit. I worked with Terry for 8 years and he has forever imprinted Savannah with his charm and humor. He has also informed us of his love of his family! Bless you, my condolences to you!

Dear Amy and Cathy, I was so shocked and saddened to learn today of Terry's loss. I know he loved you both very much. I had no idea he was ill. Thankfully he planned and prepared for eternity, and you will see him again, but I know you will need prayer support as you deal with the present pain of his absence. You have my prayers. May The Comforter give you peace that passes all understanding to keep your hearts and minds through this time. God Bless.

Sincere condolences to you and your family. I knew Terry from the County Police as an officer, then EMS, and through the County Police Assn. I also knew him from St. Paul's Lutheran Church where he offered his services as a trumpeter. Terry was always honored to play taps at the Co Police Dept when we celebrated Police Memorial Day, and we were honored to have him play for us. He will be missed.

I didn't know Terry very well -- just ran into him from time to time during my 10 years as an EMT. He was always courteous and kind and helpful. I know he will be greatly missed. May God wrap His arms around your family and help you to have peace.

Terry and I went through Basic EMT School together in the early 1980's. Of my 11 years with the Chatham County EMS, Terry and I rode together as partners, for 6 of them. Terry's personality, laughter, and sense of humor, made responding to the worst EMS calls ever imagineable- bearable. Heaven's Smiles are brighter today, because of Terry. My Love, My Thoughts, and My Prayers go out to all of Terry's Family. God Bless You All.

TERRY WAS A FRIEND OF MY FAMILY FOR A LONG TIME. WE ARE SADDENED BY HIS ILLNESS AND DEATH. HE WILL BE MISSED, ESPECIALLY AT POLICE FUNERALS, WHERE HE STOOD OFF IN THE BACKGROUND AND PLAYED "TAPS" FOR US.

Terry and I worked together at Chatham County EMS. We were in paramedic school together at Memorial Medical Center in the 1980's. Terry was an excellent paramedic and had a wicked sense of humor. I am saddened by his loss and my prayers are with his family. Rest in peace.

Terry is a special person who touched many lives with his presence. I feel blessed to have known him and will miss his ever present smile and sense of humor. I am very thankful for his dedication to the Fetal and Infant Mortality Review Program; his absence will be felt by all of us who had the pleasure to work with him. To his family, I convey my deepest sympathy; I pray for God to comfort you during this time of sorrow and in the difficult months to come.

So sorry to learn of Terry's death. I have many fond memories of his services to St. Paul's Lutheran in years past. Both Pastor Hoffner (now deceased) and I thought so much of him and appreciated his contribution, especially his music, to St. Paul's. I am out of town until Tuesday Dec. 2 and regret I cannot attend the service for Terry. May God's blessings and comfort be with all the family.
