Terry can rest assured he has two buddy's who speak of him often each Christmas Holiday season and keep his spirit alive, Joe Vassar and myself. We will never forget you and the others. We are proud to have grown up with you and to have called you a friend. Gone but never to be forgotten.

SEMPER FI, Terry. Our high school days have passed so long ago, but the memories have never faded. I see you with that big smile on your face and always up to something. You brought us so much fun and laughter in those days of youth. And yet, still in your youth, you were snapped away from us. With your name on the Memorial at Rio Americano High School, know you will never be forgotten. I salute you Marine. Rest in peace friend and Marine.

Fellow  Marine
Well done Marine rest in peace
THE TIME you won your town the race We chaired you through the market-place Man and boy stood cheering by, And home we brought you shoulder-high. To-day, the road all runners come, Shoulder-high we bring you home, And set you at your threshold down, Townsman of a stiller town. Smart lad, to slip betimes away From fields where glory does not stay And early though the laurel grows It withers quicker than the rose. Eyes the shady night has shut Cannot see the record cut, And silence sounds no worse than cheers After earth has stopped the ears: Now you will not swell the rout Of lads that wore their honours out, Runners whom renown outran And the name died before the man. So set, before its echoes fade, The fleet foot on the sill of shade, And hold to the low lintel up The still-defended challenge-cup. And round that early-laurelled head Will flock to gaze the strengthless dead, And find unwithered on its curls The garland briefer than a girl’s.
A.E. Housman, "Don't be afraid, I've redeemed you. I've called your name. You're mine.
Isaiah 43:1

Peace and condolence to the family and friends. “He which hath no stomach, to this fight, let him depart. But we in it, shall be remembered. We few, we happy few, we band of brothers!! For he today, that sheds his blood with me, shall always be my brother.” Rest in peace brave soldier, you have not been forgotten. (W.Shakespeare) May God Bless you, for your Sacrifice!!!
