Love and prayers to Fostina and family. Terry always had my highest respect--from Day 1 with Fostina--and I was there on Day 1! You made such a great couple and had such a wonderful family. I loved Terry's enthusiasm about Fostina, his family, and all his endeavors--plus he was so much fun! Love you always!
