I am glad I got to work with Terry and Margaret for many years at St Johns Center. I would run into Terry often over the years. He was a great person. My sincere condolences for family and friends.

TERRY, MARGARET AND I MET WORKING TOGETHER AT MERCY ST. JOHNS CENTER. AFTER LEAVING ST . JOHNS TERRY WENT TO HEARTLAND AS HEAD OF MAINTENANCE. TERRY WENT ABOVE BOARD TO MAKE SURE I HAD EVERYTHING I NEEDED WHILE I WAS THERE. TERRY WAS LOVED AT BOTH PLACES BUT I THINK HE WAS TRULY HAPPIER AT HEARTLAND. HE WAS WELL-LIKED/LOVED BY EVERYONE. TERRY WAS DEVOTED TO HIS FAMILY. HE TRULY LOVED HIS GIRLS AND GRANDCHILDREN. I THOUGHT HE AND MARGARET MADE A BEAUTIFUL COUPLE. THEY ARE REUNITED AGAIN

Hi Girls. Just want to say how sorry I am to learn of Terry´s passing. I would be there for you but I am in Vegas. I was in Vegas when Margaret passed as well. They both were very sweet people. I always admired how much in love they were. I always will remember the good times I had with them at St. John´s. They are together now watching over you all. Hugs and prayers
