Terrence, I always think of you and am missing you. You were a great student in my radiography classes and you were great as an imaging tech. You did my CT and MRI studies . You are in my memory and my heart always.

I think of you every day, my son. I wish I could hear your laugh. I know that all you were in this world - your intelligence, the kind, loving heart you tried to hide, your wit and wisdom - lives on in what we call heaven. We'll be together again. In the meantime, you're always in our hearts.

Dear Jim and Family,
I just heard of the sad news. There is never an easy time to say how sorry I am to hear of this. I hope you and your family's hearts are healing.

Please accept my heartfelt sympathy; I am so sorry for your great loss. May the God who "binds up the broken-hearted" and "comforts all who mourn" sustain your family during this difficult time. Isaiah 61:1,2.

Terrence was a great student of mine at Apollo College and after not seeing him for awhile, we made contact when he did my MRI exam at AzTech Imaging. It was great to see him at that time. Condolences to his family .
